Description
Lilac 'President Lincoln' is simple and elegant, with pale purple blooms and a deliciously sweet fragrance. This well branched, deciduous shrub is relatively compact compared to some of its sprawling cousins, and makes a fine choice for the back of a sunny border. The nectar-rich blooms are always busy with the hum of pollinating insects. They make charming cut flowers if you can spare a few stems. A traditional cottage garden shrub that will demand very little maintenance once established. Height: 3m (10’). Spread: 2m (6’,6").


1 x 9cm potted lilac plant (KC0115)

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.
