Garden Plant: Marie Francis Lilac
Product Description: Marie Francis Lilac
Hard to Find Pink Lilac Blooms! Lilac – Marie Francis, Syringa vulgaris ‘ Marie Frances’, is a real treat because it produces fragrant pink flowers, and with pink lilacs among all the blue-lavender-purple, this is very unusual! The lovely flowers emerge from distinctive, rich pink buds in spring on a compact form.
It has bluish-green foliage throughout the season and is a very hardy plant that tends to sucker.
The heart-shaped leaves do not develop any appreciable fall color.
‘ Marie Francis’ needs full sun and well-drained soil, and it also requires room for air movement; will tolerate poor soil conditions and harsh winters.
The ‘ Marie Francis’ shrub must have 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 to your yard, and is an attractive plant for shrub borders, a garden accent plant, or planted in mass for a flowering hedge or wind screen; excellent for cutting too!
