A stunning variety and a garden favorite! Paul Thirion Lilac, Syringa vulgaris, is a deciduous shrub with fragrant flowers. This classic lilac will wow you and pollinators alike with its irresistible aroma and breathtaking color. Panicles of pink-purple flowers are produced in late spring. Buds begin with a deep purple color and open into lavender and pink blossoms. Green, heart-shaped leaves add to the beauty of this darling plant. 

Paul Thirion Lilac grows to a height of 12 feet, with an upright, multi-stemmed form. This low-maintenance and deer-resistant shrub is perfect for borders and looks marvelous in mass plantings. Its erect, spreading habit with dense leaves makes it a great plant for privacy screening. Paul Thirion Lilac flowers look phenomenal in floral arrangements and will bring their lovely floral scent into your home!

Paul Thirion Lilac Care

Full to partial sun is needed to grow this captivating lilac. Full sun will result in more blooms. Paul Thirion Lilac performs best in average, well-drained soil with a pH of 6 to 7.5. Water regularly during the summer months, being careful not to overwater. Paul Thirion Lilac can benefit from fertilization in the spring to encourage multitudes of luscious leaves and flowers, and will grow well with little maintenance. 

Deadhead regularly to upkeep the appearance of this shrub. Buds for next year’s season are produced in the middle of summer, so prune immediately after flowering is finished in spring. Take special care not to remove next season’s buds. As lilacs age, flowering typically diminishes and is confined to the top of the plant. Older and lower stems should be regularly removed to encourage an even distribution of flowers. This shrub may also produce suckers at its base that can be removed as they appear. 

Paul Thirion Lilac Spacing

Paul Thirion Lilac has a spread of 8 feet and requires ample spacing for air circulation and light. It should be planted in the back of a border, and is fine for planting under power lines.

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.
