Description
Lilac 'Esther Staley' is an early flowering variety with flowers resembling those of a hyacinth. Purple-red buds open to a mass of lilac-pink, highly scented blooms in late spring. The heart shaped foliage emerges bronze, quickly maturing to mid-green throughout the summer. This hardy, deciduous shrub makes a welcome addition to the garden, planted near a doorway or path where its rich scent can be appreciated every time you pass by. Bees and butterflies find Syringa irresistible making it a great choice for a sunny wildlife garden. Height: to 4m (13'). Spread: 2.5m (8').

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.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow lilac plants in rich fertile, well drained, neutral or alkaline soil in full sun. Young Lilacs will benefit from a sheltered position.
More Info
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Prune lilac bushes in winter or spring by removing any damaged, diseased or misplaced stems before lightly shaping the remaining stems. After pruning, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the shrub.
