Scentara Pura® Lilac

A standout in our field and container trials, we selected Scentara Pura lilac for its well-branched, semi-dwarf, compact habit and heavy bloom each spring. The flower buds emerge a mulberry-violet and open to clear jacaranda purple. Developed from low-chill bloodlines for improved warm climate performance. Has show good resistance to powdery mildew.
