Syringa Vulgaris Sensation
Possibly so named because it can help you with many sensations. If you want to feel the sensation of falling, this is a good tree to jump out of as it is quite small. Should you feel a burning sensation in the Summer, this can provide shade and if you get a tickling sensation on your neck or face it might be time to prune. If you want to feel the sensation of flowering in May, then this is the ideal tree for you.
Considered to be a heavily scented tree, has the RHS Award Of Garden Merit and is chalk tolerant.
Expect height to be around 4 metres at the 10-year point.
Planting Syringa Sensation
Plant in a full-sun position in well drained fertile soils.
Pruning Syringa Vulgaris Sensation
Replacement pruning is the preferred method for this tree and this is when you lightly prune to promote new growth.
This tree / shrub is supplied in a pot for year-round planting and better results than from either bare-root or rootballed stock.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

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.
Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
Climate Change has increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust, frost damage etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season or less. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy and will bounce back.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy.
Mature Tree Warranty
Once a tree is over 3 years old, the failure rate is considerably less and our Tree Warranty does not cover it at 100%. Please check details.
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.
