This shrub is covered with sweetly perfumed flowers in spring that you won’t want to miss. And it doesn’t need to do a lot of work to stay in good shape, either. Just shear spent blooms to improve next year’s show if you’d like. Foliage is resistant to powdery mildew, a common problem with other lilac species.
‘Palibin’ makes a great hedge — use it along your property line so both you and your neighbor can enjoy its fragrance every spring.
