Very hard to find, and so lovely!

No other Lilac we know of has this delightful picotee effect!
'Sensation' is one of the most spectacular of all the hybrid Lilacs, and the only one we know with picotee (white-edged) flowers. Blooms of rich wine-red are edged in white and borne in long trusses that have a silvery luster beautiful beyond belief!

A hard-to-find plant you'll surely want to enhance your landscape, 'Sensation' reaches 8 to 15 feet tall and 8 to 12 feet wide -- perfect as a front-yard standout or the focus of a large planting!

Space shrubs 8 to 12 feet apart in an airy location in full sun and well-drained soil. A yearly top-dressing of mulch, preferably well-composted manure, is beneficial. Zones 4-7.
