Villosa Lilac, aka Late Lilac, is a relatively large, 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.
Many people alternate villosa and common purple lilacs to create the impression that the hedge is in flower for almost a full month.
