Betsy Ross Lilac

Syringa x oblata 'Betsy Ross'
Out of stock

Beautiful, Scented and Heat Tolerant

Besty Ross worked hard to make our country's flag and the lilac named after her will work just as hard for you. Betsy Ross Lilac (Syringa x oblata 'Betsy Ross') is the first lilac released by the U.S. National Arboretum's breeding program to introduce disease tolerant lilacs for warmer climates. So, if you've never been able to successfully grow lilacs where you live because they melt in the heat and humidity, give Betsy Ross a try.

The pure white blooms come on strong and thick, filling your garden with that heavenly lilac scent. It grows to 10' tall and wide and keeps its shape without a lot of pruning necessary.

Betsy Ross blooms early in the spring and kicks off the growing season with a bang. It loves the sun and becomes a showpiece specimen in your perennial border or foundation planting. Try Betsy Ross in a large container by the patio, too. Just make sure you plant it where you will enjoy her intoxicating fragrance.

Order your Betsy Ross Lilacs from us today and let her blooms grace your garden for years to come.
