Best known for their highly fragrant flowers from late spring into early summer, French lilacs are beautiful decorative garden shrubs that really make their presence felt and 'Madame Lemoine' is no exception with its profucsion of bright white flowers.
Appearing in great profusion at the end of branches clothed with heart-shaped green leaves, the tiny, packed clusters of yellowish buds open to reveal a mass of double, crisp white tubular blooms that smell great and act as a magnet to wildlife.
A real sun lover, lilacs can be grown in just about any soil or can be raised in large containers if kept regularly pruned, which is not difficult as the blooms make superb cut flowers.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
For a sensational floral display, year after year, deadhead when two new shoots appear beneath faded blooms and remove any wayward branches to keep a compact shape.
Supplied as a large, established plant in a 5L pot, Fl May-June. H4m x W4m (13ft approx)
