Buy Syringa vulgaris 'Andenken an Ludwig Späth' lilac 'Andenken an Ludwig Spath':

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:
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness:fully hardy

    In late spring and early summer, this award-winning lilac produces slender trusses up to a foot long, of well scented, wine-red flowers. A long-standing favourite, this shrub is considered one of the best, and it reliably puts on a great show. Even after the flowers have faded, the heart-shaped foliage looks pretty throughout the summer.

  • 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.
