Cerulean Blue Blooms on an Adaptable Shrub

This compact shrub is a low-maintenance, highly tolerant evergreen perennial. The Skylark California Lilac will bring cerulean blue blooms to your gardening space next spring!

Our Skylark California Lilac prolifically blooms in the late spring to early summer. These magnificent blossoms are violet-blue and sweetly fragrant. Not only are they beautiful, but they also attract pollinators, including hummingbirds! Plus, the foliage will provide shelter for them all year long.

And did you know? The California lilac isn't a true lilac - it's actually part of the buckthorn family! But it shares its namesake plant's bright lilac blooms and sweet fragrance.

We think the Skylark California Lilac works well in coastal, Mediterranean, and cottage style gardens. Depending on your space and desired design, you can choose to plant along slopes or banks, in beds, or as hedges, privacy screens, or borders.

This plant is also very low maintenance. With minimal water needs and an adaptability to clay soil, you won’t have to spend extra time caring for this plant. Plus, it’s also deer and rabbit resistant!

Get abundant blue blooms without the hassle. Order your own Skylark California Lilac before they’re gone!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant your Skylark California Lilac in a location with full to partial sun and well-draining soil. Although this plant is adaptable to clay soil, it will do best if you mix the clay with loose potting soil. Dig a hole that twice as wide and just as deep as the container the plant was shipped in. Place the plant in the hole and backfill the dirt. Water immediately.

2. Watering: Water frequently until the plant is well established. Then, you may water as needed.
