More details

The ‘Sensation’ variety of the Common Lilac produces single purple blossoms with distinct white margins with an attractive scent.  Often found growing wild on roadside sites, the lilac is tolerant of neglect.  Plant in a well-aired space in full sun on fertile, well-drained soil.  Deadhead often to encourage greater blooms and prune late winter, early spring.  If you are keen on attracting butterflies to your garden, this lilac will do just that.
