Syringa vulgaris 'Prairie Petitie'

Prairie Pettie Lilac

Categories: Shrubs

Lilacs have always been a bit out of reach for anyone with space concerns due to their bulky nature, but 'Prairie Petite' is a dream come true for those who have confined spaces to deal with, as it matures at less than 1/3 the size of a normal Lilac. It may be smaller in size, but it doesn't skimp on flower power, as big cones of buds open to deep pink flowers in early to mid-May, unfurling their beauty and beguiling scent for all to enjoy.
