Pocahontas Lilac

For this week we look at the Pocahontas Lilac. This showy lilac is a crowd-pleaser wherever it is found. Whether as a focal point or as a screening shrub, the Pocahontas Lilac and its fragrant blooms just dazzles its onlookers. The upright plant is a cold-hardy, vigorous bloomer that loves taking color in the early part of the season. In fact, it is more eager to get blooming earlier than any other of its counterparts. It loves to extend your lilac viewing season.

Large clusters of rich violet blooms fade to a beautiful lilac color while displaying a dark green leaf that is densely packed. If you prefer just one lilac, this should be it. The Pocahontas Lilac brings the hummingbirds and butterflies from all around. It tolerates some shade but would love it if you just planted it in full sunlight. Mature height and spread of this beauty ranges about 10 to 12 feet in both directions.

It is on sale this month at Heritage Hill Nursery so come pick one out and let the show begin.
