More information about lilac standards


Lilac standards are perfect for city gardens, balconies and terraces. They are fabulous for accentuating garden entrances and other entrance areas. They are also ideal in decorative planters with a low underplanting or along a path within low growing hedges. Therefore it is a good idea to buy and plant standards.



Lilac standard trees in the Lubera® garden shop


You can order a large number of lilac varieties as strong, well-branched standards in our garden shop. Especially popular are varieties such as ‘Ludwig Späth’, ‘Schöne von Moskau’ and the dwarf lilac ‘Palibin’. But you will also find an attractive range of standards among the other beautiful varieties. The ideal planting time for lilacs is early to mid-autumn or mid-spring. With Lubera's tried and tested plant delivery service, you will receive beautiful, strong plants that take root quickly in autumn or in the spring. After planting, they will get through the first winter well or start growing soon. 


Design flower gardens with lilacs


The wonderful pastel colours of the lilac with its typical spring scent and the striking shape of the lilac standards make these beautiful guides for beds or flower gardens. In combination with many bulbous flowers or early flowering perennials and flowering mini fruit trees, a dreamlike flower garden can be created with very little effort. You will find everything you need in the Lubera® Garden Shop. 




If you want to train an existing lilac bush to become a standard, a little patience is required. Choose a young plant with a straight, strong central shoot. Tie the shoot to a pole. Remove all but a few thin upper side branches.

The shoot that will form the future stem must grow high and increase in girth to be able to support the future crown. Therefore, newly forming side shoots must still be removed. The new shoot that forms at the top is tied to the stem.

After the lilac has grown to the height you want, cut off the shoot tip. New side shoots will form below the cutting point, which will then form the new crown of the lilac.




The side shoots of your young lilac trunk must be shortened again and again so that a well-branched crown can form. But do not shorten them too much. Lilac standards, which should bear rich flowers, must not branch too tightly in the crown.

After flowering, remove the withered lilac panicles so that the plant invests its strength in flowering and continued growth instead of seed formation.


Standards must, of course, be cut into shape in the crown from time to time. The crown must not become too large. Since lilac flowers on two-year-old wood, you must be careful when cutting it to avoid having to give up too many flowers the following year.


In addition to "cutting into shape", regular thinning is also necessary, in which whole sections of branches are removed to stubs in order to bring more light and air into the crown and to promote the regrowth of fresh branches.
