Lavender Lady Lilac is one of the most floriferous lilacs you can grow! The pastel blossoms of Syringa vulgaris ‘Lavender Lady’ are a welcome sight in mid-to-late spring. Its large, cone-shaped clusters of pale purple or pink flowers are highly fragrant and prolific. The abundance of sweet-scented flowers attract butterflies and other pollinators. Lavender Lady Lilac reaches impressive heights of 12-15 feet tall with an attractive, upright form. 

Lavender Lady Lilac is drought tolerant and low maintenance. It makes an eye-catching specimen when planted alone and is ideal for mass plantings and hedges. Grow Lavender Lady Lilac in pollinator gardens, cottage gardens, and cutting gardens to enjoy its lovely flowers. Once it finishes blooming, this shrub is an excellent backdrop for smaller shrubs, perennials, and annuals in a mixed border. 

Lavender Lady Lilac Care

Lavender Lady Lilac can be planted in partial to full sun. It needs moist, well-drained, and neutral-to-slightly-alkaline soil. Water Lavender Lady Lilac regularly during its first year of growth. This shrub is drought tolerant once established. Lavender Lady Lilac is not a heavy feeder; fertilize once a year in spring with a general-purpose, granular fertilizer or bone meal.

Pruning Lavender Lady Lilac is necessary for rejuvenation and can help plants produce more blooms as they age. For smaller, younger plants, simply deadhead the flowers immediately after blooming is finished. For larger, more established plants, prune out a third of the thickest, oldest canes each year in late winter. Cut the old canes down to the ground to encourage better air circulation, stronger growth, and more light interception for the lower leaves.

Lavender Lady Lilac Spacing

Lavender Lady Lilac is fast growing and will quickly fill in space in your garden. Space plants 9-12 feet apart to give them plenty of room to grow alongside other trees and shrubs. Plant Lavender Lady Lilac 6-8 feet apart to create a dense hedge or mass planting.

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.
