Manchurian Lilac (Korean Lilac)
Cherry Prinsepia

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.

Cherry Prinsepia is an attractive, cold hardy shrub with thorny stems and a rounded shape.

Primarily used for its shrub and hedge characteristics, Cherry Prinsepia is also grown for its ornamental fruit. Tart in flavor, the red berries are edible and enjoyed by birds and humans alike.

If deer are an issue on your property, try planting Cherry Prinsepia in a tight row to create a dense hedge to deter them.

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.
