ℹ The absolutely sensational and unique colour of this gorgeous lilac will draw all eyes to your landscape!!! In Mid to late spring, lush panicles of deep purple buds open to an amazing sky blue colour! They cover this compact lilac shrub with delicate beauty and rich colour! The buds tend to open in a staggered fashion on this lilac creating for a lovely multi coloured effect, and the florets on this lilac are known to have 5 petals instead of 4 making for an even fuller looking bloom. Beneficial pollinators will flock to the area for a taste of Wonder Blue, but deer won't bother with it. Wonderblue is a cross of Tiffany Blue' and the Rochester Lilacs. It was hybridized by the dedicated and talented Father John Fiala. Nicknamed Little Boy Blue, this variety should be used just about anywhere you crave unique beauty. The fragrant blooms are superior for cutting. We recommend including these sturdy, sweet blooms in cut flower displays. The diminutive mounded shape is perfect for today's smaller landscapes. You can even grow them in large containers on your patio or entryway! One on either side makes a memorable display flanking the doorway. Use this plant where you can see it and smell it. Wonderblue Lilac is refined enough to take center stage. If you see this special, small shrub in stock on our site, be ready to place your order! We tend to sell out of these customer favourites every year. Makes a striking addition to sunlit borders and cutting gardens. When planted in groups, it works equally well as a flowering privacy screen. A moderate grower once established, it reaches 3-5' tall with a 3-4' spread. Syringa vulgaris 'WonderBlue': Prolific in bloom and lush in perfume, this will create a wonderful, whimsical atmosphere in any sunny garden spot!
