Care

General Maintenance: The heads of top-grafted shrubs should be lightly pruned on an annual basis with a focus on keeping the top-graft rounded and neat. Pruning the top-graft must be done with recognition of its effect on flower development. In the case of lilac, it is best to prune immediately after flowering so as to allow next years blooms to develop. It is also critical to remove leafy shoots that arise from along the inter-stem and at its base. These sprouts and suckers can quickly overpower the top-grafted shrub, destroying the beauty of the grafted cultivar.
Light: Full sun.
Watering: Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Increase watering before spring bloom.
Soil: It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations. It is not particular as to soil type or pH.
Fertilizer: Feed in early spring with an all purpose fertilizer prior to the new growth.
