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.
