The Katherine Havenmeyer lilac is an exquisite spring blooming lilac featuring magically fragrant double pink flowers in upright panicles. It features an upright, multi-stemmed habit and is very hardy. The heart-shaped leaves do not develop any appreciable fall colour and neither the brown oval seeds or the smooth grey bark is particularly outstanding.
The Katherine Havemeyer Lilac is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage.
This is a moderate maintenance shrub that will require regular care and upkeep, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies but is not deer. \
The Katherine Havemeyer Lilac will grow to be about 8 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 6 feet. It tends to be a little leggy, with a typical clearance of 3 feet from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.
This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under average home landscape conditions. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments.
