A fragrant lilac that reblooms is one of the most sensible scented shrubs you can have in your garden. Scent and Sensibility Pink Lilac is so much more, too! The dwarf lilac attracts butterflies with its delicate and aromatic pink blooms that can appear from early spring through late fall. Dark pink buds open to reveal soft pink flowers.
Lilacs are known for their easy care, especially considering the color and fragrance the gardener gets in return. This little lilac grows to only 2 to 3 feet tall and up to 6 feet wide, so it's a great choice as a container thriller, especially when placed near any walkway, deck, patio or entryway. Scent and Sensibility Pink Lilac is wider than it is tall, so you also will love planting it to border garden beds or structures in the landscape. The lilac is cold hardy to zone 3 and heart hardy to zone 7, so it's a versatile plant for lots of U.S. regions.
Scent and Sensibility Pink Lilac Care
Plant Scent and Sensibility Pink Lilac in full sun and soil that is moist but drains well. You can prune your lilac for shape after its spring bloom. Add a controlled-release fertilizer in early spring to boost its flower power. Although the leaves drop in winter, they return in early spring, quickly filling out the shrub's mounded form.
Scent and Sensibility Pink Lilac Spacing
Space a row or other grouping of Scent and Sensibility Pink Lilac shrubs 4 to 6 feet from each other. Be sure to consider its widespread and short height in a container design.
