With the direct translation of Krasavitsa Moskvy meaning Beauty of Moscow, it is no surprise when you see the large, white but pink-kissed flowers of this outstanding shrub. Beauty of Moscow Lilac is a gorgeous and wide-reaching shrub reaching 15 feet in height and 15 feet in width. This shrub balances its light pink, creamy colored flowers with its dark green dense foliage, and emits a wonderful fragrance. 

This large shrub reigns gorgeously in most gardens and grows best in USDA hardiness zones 3 through 8. Beauty of Moscow Lilac shrubs do the best in full sun but can tolerate light shade. Beauty of Moscow Lilac also attracts butterflies and hummingbirds while also being deer resistant. This tall shrub is perfect for placement as a border or hedge because of its beautiful flowering and dense foliage. 

Beauty of Moscow Plant Care

Beauty of Moscow Lilac is a fairly low maintenance shrub. The plant prefers full sun and fertile soil. The soil recommended for Beauty of Moscow Lilac should be hummus-like and well-draining with a pH ranging from alkaline to neutral. When planted in full sun, mulching is also recommended to prevent dry spells severely affecting the soil moisture. Water your Beauty of Moscow Lilac once a week and more often if facing severe summer weather. 

We recommend pruning immediately after flowering to increase bloom quantity the following year. It also recommended pruning away any dead or unhealthy stems. You can do this by pruning directly at soil level. 

Beauty of Moscow Spacing

The Beauty of Moscow Lilac is a large shrub, so plant with about 15 feet of space in diameter from the center of the plant to ensure Beauty of Moscow Lilac has room to mature.

    I ordered 3 lilacs and was very impressed with them. They were much larger than I expected and in pretty good health. Some were showing possible signs of chorosis so I'm monitoring them for anything more, but overall I was really pleased with them. Definitely recommend!

    Ordered early spring, recieved plants in May. Blooming season has past, according to other Lilacs. Had clay soil to amend. We've had needed rain in this drought prone area of Colorado, so didn't want the plants to drown. They are stressed. I'm stressed. I hope they make it through summer and the next winter. Only time will tell. I hope to see the beauty next spring.

    My 3 large lilacs, rose, and ferns all arrived in great condition and are already in the ground. Upon request, they were able to ship in advance of what the shipping date for my area was. I'm happy to support this family-owned business working hard to spread plant love and overall is has been a good experience. One observation -- it seems odd for a company that promotes itself as family business would outsource all email/chat communication to another part of the world. It was a little frustrating that my questions couldn't be answered directly by the company but were funneled through people with names like Bubbles (seriously). I did receive answers within 24 hours, however, so that part was successful. Thanks again!
