‘Ludwig Späeth’ Lilac

Syringa vulgaris 10-12' x same. Späeth Nursery, Berlin, 1883. Also known as Andenken an Ludwig Späeth.

These deep rich purple flowers are always a knock-out. Dark but never so dark that the color becomes flat and the highlights lost. This is a magnificent deep purple. Although we hesitate to use the word red, there is enough red in the purple to give it a regal look. Single flowers on large upright spires. Upright growth habit. Will sucker over time. One of the very best of the very best. Z3. (1-3' bare-root plants)

Additional Information


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.
