Japanese Lilac


Japanese Tree Lilac can be grown as a small specimen tree or large shrub that bears creamy white flowers in large panicles in June and July. Can also be grown in clumps, which has three or more stems. This lilac tree will bloom when spring flowers has faded. Its a great tree that fills the gap between spring tree and shrubs and summer trees and shrub flowers. This is alittle easier maintenance then other shrub lilac, this tree will keep its shape without extensive pruning, just watch out for damaged twigs and stems.
