Buy Syringa meyeri Flowerfesta Purple ('Anny200809') (PBR)(Flowerfesta Series) repeat flowering dwarf lilac: Sweetly scented flowers.

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to May, then intermittently until October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Producing larger than average (in comparison to other Syringa meyeri forms) sprays of sweetly scented flowers, which usually appear repeatedly from mid-spring to mid-autumn, Flowerfesta Purple really lives up to its name. It's relatively compact too, so will happily flourish in a larger pot - and given its showy nature, it definitely merits a spot in the garden.

  • Garden care: In mid-summer remove the faded flower heads carefully using secateurs to avoid damaging the young shoots. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in early spring.
