Lilac 'Superba' (Large Plant)

Syringa pubescens subsp. microphylla, Syringa microphylla 'Superba'

Hardy Shrub

Delicate clusters of soft pink tubular flowers smother this deciduous shrub in late spring. The pretty blooms of Syringa subsp. microphylla 'Superba' have a powerful sweet perfume that is hard to resist.

The compact habit of this striking Lilac makes it incredibly versatile. Plants are ideal for large patio containers and small gardens, or can also be trained into a fragrant, colourful hedge or grown against a wall. Height and spread: up to 3.5m (11').


Culinary note: Adding the fragrant flowers to cream cheese or even yoghurt for a hint of lemon flavour. For more details about edible flowers click here.
