Katherine Havemeyer Lilac Tree (Syringa vulgaris 'Katherine Havemeyer') 

A popular small lilac tree/shrub that has large dense bunches of highly fragrant double, purple-lavender flowers in May fading to pale lilac in mid summer. They fade a bit more after that but a lot of people call that dead, we prefer the term "heavily restricted life". 

You may not have seen the awards given to it on the BBC but take it from us, the RHS loved it so much, they gave it an AGM (Award Of Garden Merit)

This particular Lilac tree is considered chalk tolerant so if you happen to leave it in teachers stationary supply cupboard for a while, it won't be picking a fight with the black board writing sticks. In fact we would go a bit further than chalk tolerant and actually say it thrives in chalk. 

For best results make friends with a Syringa expert and/or plant in full sun. It will do well in fertile, hummus rich, well drained and alkaline to neural soils. 

Maintenance pruning is advised to remove all dead, diseased and crossing over branches as is a light prune to encourage new growth. Other forms of encouragement such as clapping and shouting "COME ON, DIG DEEP, PUSH THEM FLOWERS OUT" is not as effective as the previously mentioned light pruning.  

A small height tree/shrub, so expect a height of around 4 metres (13 foot) after 10 years. If you are particularly tall or spend a lot of time on a step ladder you may think it has not grown as much as you wanted. Equally, if you are height challenged then you may think you have purchased a Syringa Monster and received exceptional value for money. So if you are a bit of a short arse, we definitely want a customer testimonial from you. 

This tree/shrub is supplied at a height of 50-120cm in a 7-12 litre container for year round planting and better results than from either bare-root or rootballed stock. The size range is a little broad because it depends when in the year your purchased it, what the weather has been like and if we have had a recent episode of pruning misunderstandings. 

If we are sold out of Katherine Havemeyer Syringa Lilac trees then the Charles Jolly is very similar but a slightly darker purple and the Sensation Lilac tree is almost identical in colour.    

Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

See What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Katherine Havemeyer Lilac Tree

Tree received in good order & reasonable time.  Planted in accordance with useful instructions & so far (7 days later) has not yet keeled over.  Not the cheapest tree I've bought recently but hopefully may be the best, ask me again in a couple of years ! Regards Alan D 1014

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Multiple Order Discount
Orders over £300 can be discounted by contacting us on 0800 043 1057

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Multi-Stem Syringa (Lilac) Trees

Most Syringa from Trees Online will be multi-stem or shrub like unless otherwise stated. If it is important to you, please state at checkout which is your preference.  

Grafted Syringa (Lilac) Trees

All Syringa (Lilac) trees, have been grafted to produce a better tree in terms of vigour and earlier flowering. The rootstock used is a special selection (S. tomentella) which reduces suckering to a minimum. S. vulgaris is not used as a rootstock for this reason.
