Common Lilac Bush

Regular price £29.99


Despite its delicate and pretty appearance, the Syringa Vulgaris Lilac is one hardy shrub. It's loved for its purple flowers that have a sweet fragrance to them and it will also attract hummingbirds and butterflies to your garden.

Too good to just enjoy outdoors, the blooms on the Common Lilac Bush make fantastic cut-flowers for you to bring inside and brighten up your home with.

This plant is a real sun-lover, so position somewhere it can soak up the rays. It's a versatile plant, so is happy to be planted direct into a flowerbed, or potted in a container to bring some colour to your patio. It grows roughly around 1 -2 foot per year.

Jo's Top Tip

Don't forget, this is a deciduous shrub, which means it will lose its leaves in autumn - this is perfectly normal, it's just making way for fresh new foliage to appear in spring.

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
