Picture of Syringa Congo

Commonly known as Lilac but there is nothing common about this lovely spring flowering lilac. Delicious panicles of deep mauve single blooms with a reddish hue and a delightful fragrance. Happy in sun or part shade in deeply worked soil. Side dress with Lime annually. Deciduous.

Any pruning should be done immediately after flowering.
