Beauty of Moscow Lilac

Syringa vulgaris ‘Krasavitsa Moskvy’

White lilac with double blooms and very fragrant. Flowers have a touch of pink, turning white in full bloom.

Bred in Russia by hybridist Leonid Kolesnikov.
Said to be very resistant to pests and disease. Reaches 15′ high and spreads 6-12′ wide, though I’ve had mine for 3 years and it is just a whispy stick or two.

The photo is the total bloom production for the year.

Ideal for zones 3-7. this lilac takes full sun to partial shade.

If you are looking for deer resistant shrubs, choose a lilac.
