Few purple flowers have so inspired people as to lend their name to a particular tint: heliotrope, lavender, violet and of course lilac. With a charming flower display that bridges the gap between spring and summer, this deciduous genus includes some of the most sweet-scented, elegant and colorful woody plants available.
Hats off to the University of Nebraska for this prized diminutive Lilac whose beautiful blooms and tidy stalwart bearing make it indispensable in any landscape, especially those short on space. Garbed with attractive heart-shaped bright green leaves, the snug rounded habit hosts intensely fragrant 3 to 4 in. long pink panicles that eventually pale to lavender. Coveted by butterflies, honey bees and floral designers, ‘Prairie Petite’ can be clipped into a low hedge, ensconced in perennial borders and cottage gardens or planted along a foundation, while tolerating summer heat, cold winters and dry conditions.
Size: 3' 0" – 4' 0" high x 3' 0" – 4' 0" wide.
