Syringa villosa seed
The Villosa Lilac (Syringa villosa) commonly called Late Lilac is a rounded, deciduous shrub that matures to 10’ tall on upright stems clad with ovate to oblong, medium green leaves. It blooms several weeks later than common lilac, hence the common name. Showy, slightly fragrant, rose-lilac to white flowers bloom in May. Flowers give way to loose clusters of brown capsules that persist into winter if not removed. Villosa Lilac is easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates light shade, but best bloom is in full sun. Prefers organically rich, moist, slightly acidic soils with good drainage.
