SYRINGA (LILAC) as a Hedgeplant

(D = deciduous leaf losing)

Syringa vulgaris, up to 7 ft. Lilac is usually grown for its flowers, and named varieties are obtainable in mauve, purple, pink, red and white. When grown as a formal hedge, and not as a screen, it is usually clipped after flowering. It responds well to clipping but forms numerous suckers, and it is a tedious and uncomfortable job to remove them. An expensive proposition for a hedge of any length. Plant during the winter, 2-1/2 to 3 ft. apart.
