Yankee Doodle Lilac

Description
Some flowering shrubs are simply more beloved than others—and lilacs are arguably the most adored of all. Poets and artists, as well as gardeners, have paid tribute to their heady fragrance and many feel a garden isn't complete without them. French lilacs were all the rage in the 19th century, but in recent years the US has caught up with fantastic cultivars that are best suited to our environment. One of the very best American-bred hybrids of the renowned Ohio lilac breeder, Father John Fiala, Yankee Doodle is among the deepest, darkest purples you can find. The enormous blossom clusters open from deep purple buds, filling your late-spring garden with their classic fragrance, generally before Memorial Day. A profuse bloomer, it's hardy and to easy care for; a perfect choice for a windbreak or privacy hedge that also serves to attract pollinators. These sturdy shrubs are in a class by themselves. Prefers full sun and neutral to slightly alkaline soil. Syringa vulgaris 'Yankee Doodle'
