Krasavitsa Moskvy Lilac

Syringa vulgaris ‘Krasavitsa Moskvy’
Krasavitsa Moskvy (Beauty of Moscow) Lilac has it all. It is weather resistant, hardy and has a long blooming period. The unusually large, double flowered lilac, has pink buds that open to pure white. The striking flowers have an unusual bicolor effect. But perhaps the best attribute, is the fragrance. This beauty will knock your socks off. Grow lilacs in full sun to partial shade with good air movement. In more stagnate, shady conditions, mildew can be a problem. Plant on a bit of a mound to insure good drainage. Krasavitsa Moskvy makes a great landscape shrub as well as a wonderful cut flower.
