The fun of this beautiful lilac shrub is watching it change from season to season! Great as both a garden or container plant, it displays bright green foliage with a burgundy tint in Fall. Then, during Winter, its highly fragrant and abundant blooms turn deep purple in bud form, before opening into rich mauve flowers when Spring arrives. Also available with a planter for displaying on a patio or terrace, this unique variety is a wonderful gift for surprising someone special, whatever the occasion.

This stunning plant can be kept in its container and placed on a patio or terrace as a striking addition to the décor. If re-planted, a lilac with such wonderful fragrance and beautiful color needs to be placed where it can be admired three seasons of the year. The unusual small growth of this shrub makes it easy to place in the front of a border, or to use as a low hedge along a drive or sidewalk.
