Lilac

<i>Syringa meyeri</i> ‘Palibin’

Few purple blossoms have so inspired people as to lend their name to a particular tint: heliotrope, lavender, violet and of course lilac. ‘Palibin’s profusion of delicately perfumed lavender-pink blooms bursts forth from dark purple buds. Polished leaves, deeply green and somewhat leathery, attire this small statured, close-knit twiggy shrub, whose diminutive guise can shape a handsome verdant hedge all by itself, with or without pruning, or become an alluring component for the rockery or a mixed border.

Perhaps the most dwarf of all Lilacs, this refined jewel should be planted in well drained soil and cut back after flowers are spent to ensure the following year’s bloom.

Blooms May.

Size: 3' 0" – 5' 0" high x 4' 0" wide.

Zone 3/4.
