Syringa vulgaris Tiny Dancer™

Large, intensely fragrant lavender blooms on a compact, mildew resistant plant.

Through the fragrance of Tiny Dancer™ past meets future with a memorable scent. Too long considered a leggy plant for old-fashioned gardens, this lilac has a compact form, making it ideal anywhere hard-working, independent plants are needed. In addition to the cold-hardiness expected from a lilac, Tiny Dancer™   boasts remarkable heat tolerance, growing and blooming where few lilacs have gone before. Even in Zone 8, violet-purple buds open into lavender flowers, ranking it among the dogwoods and azaleas as a benchmark of spring. Large panicles measure 4 to 5 inches, and the large florets make each cluster appear luxuriously full. Foliage and flowers are in perfect scale, one complementing the other. You know the feeling when everything is right about a plant. It exudes quality. That is our Tiny Dancer™ and we are happy to bring it to you, one of the best new plants for today’s garden.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
