Abundant panicles of fragrant pink flowers open from red buds from early to midsummer, creating a vibrant blast of colour. This is a very pretty but compact lilac that is perfect for a smaller garden, or for those where space is at a premium. Its' diminutive habit also makes it a good option for a large pot on a sunny patio - otherwise find a prominent spot for it in a shrub or mixed border. 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
