Wonderfully fragrant!

Hybrid Lilac is exceedingly hardy and weather resistant!

Delightfully fragrant, the large panicles are abundant and exceptionally full, making this a superb garden plant, as well as a perfect choice for cut flowers.

Krasavitsa Moskvy grows 12 to 18 inches annually. In 8 to 10 years you can expect a fully developed shrub, 8 to 10 feet tall and 6 to 7 feet wide. Zones 3-7.
