Villosa Lilac for sale

Villosa Lilac

Villosa Lilac

Syringa villosa


Villosa Lilac, aka Late Lilac, is a relatively large and cold hardy shrub.

Its mauve flowers grow in clusters at the end of its branches during mid to late summer and fade to a light pink as it matures. Villosa Lilac grows quickly and is very drought resistant, making it most suitable for the outer row of a shelterbelt. Its roots are non-suckering and it does not compete with nearby crops.

This species is also known as one of the more salt-tolerant species for those with saline soils.

Many people alternate villosa and common purple lilacs to create the impression that the hedge is in flower for almost a full month.
