Lilacs sweeten the spring air each year, and Scentara Double Blue Lilac packs a fragrance punch. This lilac variety, Syringa hyacinthiflora, has been specially bred for superb fragrance and is one of the most fragrant varieties available. It's also resistant to most diseases and loaded with aromatic purple blossoms. The shrub's rich green heart-shaped leaves offset the pretty lavender-colored blooms. And Scentara Double Blue Lilac is an easy plant to care for; it resists most diseases and is deer resistant.

The aroma is enough to make anyone nearby stop and take it in, and the large cluster of cool purple blooms on Scentara Double Blue Lilac look bluish in the spring sun. This lilac is a must-have in spring landscapes for zones 2 through 8. Scentara Double Blue grows to a height and width of 6 to 8 feet. This makes the shrub a perfect backdrop for plants that bloom later in the season. You especially want to plant this upright lilac near a sidewalk, patio or entryway so you can enjoy the scent on spring days.

Scentara Double Blue Lilac Care

Plant Scentara Double Blue Lilac in nearly any soil that drains well. The shrub needs regular watering, especially for the first few years, but should not sit in soggy soil following heavy rain or snow. Plant it in full sun. Lilacs can take heat but need enough cool nights in winter to form blooms. Its leaves drop in winter but come back each spring. You don't have to prune lilacs, but if you want to shape your plant, prune right after it is done blooming in spring. The flowers form on the plant's old wood.

Scentara Double Blue Lilac Spacing

If you want a full border or hedge of Scentara Double Blue Lilac for abundant spring color and a wave of sweet fragrance, space the plants about 6 to 8 feet apart.

Interesting Fact(s) - Lilacs are known for the heat tolerance, but these actually need a minimum of 1,700 hours of temperatures below 45°F (7.2°C) in order to bloom.

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.
