Lilac-James Mcfarlane Pink #5

Easily extend the amount of time you get to enjoy the mesmerizing springtime scent of Lilacs by simply adding James Macfarlane Lilac (Syringa presoniae 'James Macfarlane'). They bloom just about two weeks later than Syringa vulgaris types. And what magnificent blooms!

True, single, pink flowers bloom freely on large trusses borne on the branch tips for a showy display. These deliciously scented flowers bloom in May and June, depending on where you live. They are especially attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds.

They are so floriferous; you can use a single stem as a bouquet all by itself. The flowers are held on the plant on excellent stems for cutting and held upright on the plant very nicely.

The flower buds are a dark-rose, almost burgundy color. As the flowers open, the soft, true pink flower color is revealed. For cut flowers, pick them just as the flowers are beginning to open and they'll last in the vase for a long time. The flowers have a wonderful Lilac fragrance, but are not overpowering.

Landscapers love the versatility of this lovely, coarse-textured, deciduous shrub. It makes an elegant oval specimen for a sunny location.

Originating from Canada, tough James Macfarlane is very cold hardy all the way down to Zone 2. This wonderful Lilac blooms about two weeks after Common Purple Lilacs. Bright green foliage turns a buttery yellow in the fall before dropping.
