Cultivar Notes - 'Wedgewood Blue'
This unique Lilac has lilac-pink buds opening into very large, single, true-blue blossoms in May. These flowers have a fine fragrance and are excellent for cutting. This medium sized plant has dark green, disease resistant foliage.

French lilacs make fine feature plants. Cut their fresh blossoms for fragrant, long-lasting flower arrangements.

Genus Notes - Syringa
Syringa is the Lilac genus, most often represented by S. vulgaris, the Common or French Lilac. Less well known but equally useful are the species Lilacs, compact and floriferous shrubs that are rarely bothered by powdery mildew. Lilacs develop their best habit and flowers when grown in full sun and prefer average to fertile soil that is neutral to slightly alkaline and well-drained. Though moderately drought tolerant, they still prefer supplemental water during very dry spells. Next year's flower buds are set shortly after blooming, so prune directly after their yearly display.
