Lilacs

Our Lilacs are hardy flowering shrubs that are easy to grow in your garden.

Lilac bushes are a classic in American gardens, and the heart of spring bouquets. The pioneers carried starts of this sturdy shrub across the continent, and it heralds spring from Washington D.C. to Washington State. Use it as an accent, foundation shrub, or planted 3’ apart as a hedge. It does best in full sun, and is relatively pest and disease free. It can develop mildew in damp climates, and should be pruned to encourage good air circulation. The lavishly fragrant blooms may take several years to reach their full potential on newly planted shrubs.

USDA Zones 3-9.

Enjoy their wonderful fragrance.



Items listed on the website are what we have available this season. Items appearing in the Raintree catalog that are sold out do not appear on the website. If you are interested in reserving a sold out item for next year, call us at 1-800-391-8892.
LATE PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS: If you live in an area where temperatures are now often above 75 degrees, it is too warm to plant bare root plants. You can call us and reserve for next season. For those of you in cooler areas, our bare root plants area dormant in cold storage and are in great condition to dig in and grow for you.

We advise soaking the roots for 24 hours before planting.
