Syringa Reticula Chinese Lilac

Tree Spotlight: Syringa Reticula

With a profusion of perfect, creamy, fragrant flowers and cherry-brown bark, the Syringa Reticula (aka Japanese Tree Lilac) is possibly the most trouble-free lilac you can grow. Hardy and tough, the Tree Lilac is resistant to mildew, borers and scale. It grows 20-30 feet tall and blooms in early to mid-June.

Follow these steps to maintain a healthy and beautiful plant:

  • Provide water during bloom and heavy growth periods.
  • Prune to ensure good air circulation and to maintain shape.
  • Prune immediately after flowering to avoid removing flower buds.
