Equinox Valley Lilac, Syringa x hyacinthiflora ’Equinox Valley’ has abundant double flowers that are sweetly fragrant and bred to be 1/3 larger than other Lilac varieties. The upright branches of Equinox Valley Lilac are topped with tapered panicles; deep purple-red buds appear in early May and open into unique, double, lavender-purple, fragrant flowers. A must-have for indoor cut-flower arrangements. 

This fragrant, deer-resistant beauty is a pollinator magnet. Equinox Valley Lilac grows in USDA hardiness zones 3-8 and reaches up to 12 ft high and 4-8 feet wide. Use it as a colorful hedge that will quickly fill in and provide privacy. This lilac is lovely when strategically placed near walkways, decks, or entrance ways, so the magnificent fragrance and blooms can be enjoyed up close. 

Equinox Valley Lilac Care

Plant Equinox Valley in a sunny location for best flowering with at least 6 or more hours each day of direct sunlight. It performs best when grown in well-draining soil, ideally rich in organic matter such as garden compost, but it can tolerate a range of soil types once established. Equinox Valley Lilac requires consistent water, but never enjoys sitting in soggy soil.

Remove flowers when faded or dried to encourage more growth. The only pruning needed is for shaping; do this right after your Equinox Valley Lilac is finished blooming in the spring. 

Equinox Valley Lilac Spacing

Equinox Valley Lilac is an excellent selection used as a fragrant and colorful flowering shrub border or as a single garden specimen. When planting as a hedge, space plants 6-7 feet apart to ensure the branches have plenty of sun and air circulation.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
