Monge Lilac

Instead of the pale pink and purple we're used to with lilacs, make a big statement with rich red-purple flower spikes. You'll still get that incredible scent everyone loves lilacs for—transforming your landscape each spring. While the flowers attracts butterflies and hummingbirds, there's some things we're very excited that it won't attract—pests and diseases. Use a line of them as a gorgeous flowering hedge. Or if you're using just one for a focal point, you can let a clematis that blooms slightly before or after climb through to fill this lilac with flowers for even longer. Just be sure to bring in a few flower spikes to perfume your home, too!

Other Notes:

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others. Our customers have suggested that they would rather wait to receive their order as complete as possible. If you would like to receive part of your order ahead of time, please reach out to our customer service department and we can accommodate. Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.

Bareroot perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and provides your new plant with the best opportunity for success in your garden.
