How To Use Syringa Vulgaris Andenken an Ludwig Späth

How To Care For Syringa Vulgaris Andenken an Ludwig Späth
This is an easy-to-grow reliable lilac that requires very little maintenance. It does best in a sunny, well-drained spot and thrives on chalky ground. It can cope with some exposure, but the best flowering displays are found on partially sheltered lilacs.

Water it well until established and prune it back each year to encourage its flower production. Remove any crossed stems and cut back to your preferred height after flowering.

A thick layer of organic mulch on the roots in early spring will help boost the richly scented flower display. More on Lilac Trees on our blog.
