This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil
  • Rate of Growth: average
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Dense panicles of marvellously fragrant, double white flowers in May and June and heart-shaped, fresh-green leaves. This elegant white lilac is perfect for a sunny mixed or shrub border. Growing a late-summer flowering clematis through the branches is a good way of enhancing the shrub after it has flowered.

  • Garden care: In mid summer remove the faded flower heads carefully using secateurs to avoid damaging the young shoots. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in early spring.
