More information about rare lilacs


...belong to the lilac species that are still relatively rare in our European gardens. All three lilac types are characterised not only by their many flowers and their very own exotic scent but also by their splendid autumn colours. Also, the shape of the leaves and the growth habit are clearly different from the common lilac (Syringa vulgaris). Their arching, overhanging branches are another special feature of these rare ornamental shrubs. If your garden is too small for a lilac that grows up to 6-7 metres high, you can buy suitable unusual lilacs from our Lubera plant shop. The rediscovered wild lilacs are cultivars that fit into every garden as much smaller flowering shrubs and they also have a longer flowering period.


Rare lilacs from all over the world


Originating from China, the nodding lilac (Syringa reflexa), also called pendulous lilac, is a fantastic bee pasture with its fragrant flowers. In autumn its leaves turn an impressive, orange-yellow colour. Syringa afghanica, colloquially known as Afghan lilac, is a noble lilac with violet to lavender-blue flowers and a yellow autumn colour that is unusual for Syringa. The Afghan lilac belongs to the weakly growing dwarf lilacs. The Afghan lilac is mainly bought for its wonderful scent. And it is well suited for smaller gardens and for growing in containers.

As a particularly beautiful species, the pearl lilac (a cross between S. reflexa x S. sweginzowii) is also recommended. This lilac with its overhanging branches and the different colour intensity of its long flower panicles is a beautiful eye-catcher for all lilac lovers.
