Manchurian Lilac (Korean Lilac)
no image

Manchurian Lilac (aka Korean Lilac) is a medium-sized shrub that features fragrant clusters of pale purple flowers in late spring.

Manchurian Lilac is less affected by disease than other lilacs and will create a beautiful border, hedge, or privacy screen. If you are looking for a lilac for your shelterbelt, consider Common Purple Lilac or Villosa Lilac first.

Korean Boxwood is a vibrant evergreen shrub. A top choice for colder climates, this shrub will look stunning lining a driveway or as a foundation plant.

Easy to root in and maintain, Korean Boxwood's thick foliage is deer resistant and turns an attractive yellow-brown to purplish in winter. Consider applying mulch around the base to keep the roots moist and cool.

Note: Unfortunately this difficult to grow species is not currently scheduled to grow at TreeTime.ca. Perhaps try purchasing seed from SeedTime.ca and growing your own? Or sign up for a restock notification above.
