If you are a lilac lover, then you have already heard of Beauty of Moscow (Syringa vulgaris 'Krasavitsa Moskvy'). If you are new to the world of lilacs, then this is a great place to start.
You won’t find a commercially available lilac with bigger flowers or a more powerful perfume.
It is difficult to understand how beautiful the Beauty of Moscow flower heads are until you see them in person. The buds are a soft combo of pink and purple.
They open at different times along the stem as pure white flowers. The mix of the purple, pink and white against the heart-shaped green leaves is really stunning.
The Beauty of Moscow Lilac is very hardy and weather resistant. It is a rugged upright plant that is excellent for cut flowers so you can enjoy their captivating scent in your home. One flower stem will perfume your whole house.
A relatively new introduction to the lilac world, these tend to sell out quickly. Don’t wait too long to order this, or you might find yourself having to wait until next year to enjoy this beautiful, world-renowned shrub.
