SYRINGA VULGARIS - Lilac
Relatively easy difficulty – 2/5
Daily throughout the growing season, keep moist in winter
Scented mauve flowers
Suitable for all bonsai styles, except formal upright and broom
The unique and very irregular trunk gives the Lilac tree an aged appearance. The tree produces new shoots from the base of the tree and the roots.
The green, heart-shaped leaves appear just before flowering in spring. In autumn, the leaves turn green-yellow and delicate, mauve flowers grow in clusters from May to June.
