Syringa vulgaris 6x8' Rochester x Mrs. August Belmont. Fiala intro, Ohio, 1981.
Lilac-pink buds precede large beautiful wisteria-like hanging racemes of single blue blossoms. Named for the blue color in the English pottery you might have seen collecting dust on your grandmother’s shelf.
Very showy with a fine fragrance. Excellent for cutting. Upright form. Somewhat more modest in stature than most lilacs. Plant with deep purples and reddish magentas for stunning contrast. Z3. (1-3' bare-root plants)

Plant in a sunny (at least 6 hours of sunlight each day) well-drained location in moderately rich soil; sandy gravelly loam is perfect. Pink, lavender and blue lilacs color up best in soil with a neutral pH. Spacing depends on your plan; lilacs perform well as hedges as well as specimens.
