Exposure: Full Sun
Mature Size: 10′ H X 8′ W
Bloom Time: Spring
Description: A stunning spring blooming lilac featuring intensely fragrant double pink flowers in upright panicles; upright, multi-stemmed habit, very hardy, tends to sucker, ideal for screening; full sun and well-drained soil, allow room for air movement
Ornamental Features: Belle de Nancy Lilac features showy panicles of fragrant pink flowers rising above the foliage in mid spring, which emerge from distinctive fuchsia flower buds. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has bluish-green foliage throughout the season. The heart-shaped leaves do not develop any appreciable fall colour. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.
Landscape Attributes: Belle de Nancy Lilac is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage.
This is a high maintenance shrub that will require regular care and upkeep, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.
(Trees, Shrubs and Perennials labelled Zone 2 or 3 are consistently hardy enough to survive in Calgary, Okotoks and surrounding areas)
