How To Care

The Common Lilac is easy to care for. This lilac enjoys full sun and is adaptable to variety of soils as long as they are well-drained. Water deeply twice weekly for the first 2-3 months. Once established water when the ground is dry. Fertilize with a slow release fertilizer in spring for best results. No need to prune this lilac, but if you do, right after spring blooms fade is the time recommended. The flowers bloom on old and new wood. Deadheading old blooms does encourage faster and more plentiful reblooming, but isn’t necessary if you want to avoid the task. Lilacs are deer resistant.

Avoid diseases and pests by providing the ideal environment for your plant to thrive. Not many pests bother this lilac. However watch out for Scale and Borers. Scale is an insect seen on the underside of leaves, stems, and branches. They may look cottony or waxy and move slowly or not at all. These insects are parasitic so they can be a problem if they become abundant. They can be treated with neem oil. Be sure to thoroughly cover the entire plant and apply multiple doses. If you see holes in the stems of your plant you have Borers. These are generally hard to treat without pruning the plant back as they live inside the plant. However, natural pesticide, Bacillus thuringiensis can be an effective treatment. Avoid fungus issues by watering at the base of your plant rather than over the leaves.

Planting your lilac: Find a nice sunny spot to plant your lilac. Dig a hole 1½ times bigger than the pot. Gently remove the plant from the pot and pull apart the roots a little bit at the bottom and sides. Place your Lilac bush inside the hole, ensuring that the root ball is level with the surrounding surface. Tamp the soil in place to remove any oxygen bubbles and water it thoroughly.
