When you think lilac, purple lilac is what most people conjure in their minds. Purple Lilac shrubs are commonly found near abandoned homesteads where pioneers planted them on their journey out west—so important to them was the feeling of ‘home’ this lilac provided. Expect large panicles of lavender flowers in late May/early June. Does well in alkaline soils, wind, and (once established) drought conditions. Excellent choice for a hedge, an informal screen, or part of a windbreak planting.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.
