Clouds of lavender-pink blooms!

Syringa patula Dream Cloud™

Extra large panicles of pink, fluffy flowers are so plentiful they nearly cover the foliage in early summer. This intoxicatingly fragrant lilac is suitable for urban gardens where its alluring fragrance will permeate your entire outdoor space.

Every once in a while a plant comes along that we know from the very start is going to be a winner. This dense-growing Manchurian lilac is destined for the clouds! With a different color than the species, in early summer you’ll find Dream Cloud™ covered in fluffy panicles of pink flowers—so much so that there’s hardly a trace of the leaves to be seen. A spectacular sight to see, these blooms measure 12” long x 9” wide! Plant Dream Cloud™ along a sunny garden path so you can savor its sweet, intoxicating fragrance, or near your patio to enjoy as you take time to relax. And be sure to harvest some of the flowers to bring indoors—they make fabulous cuts.

As summer wanes, cooler nights produce a rich, purple, fall color—yet another nuance that adds one more season of interest. This plant is truly a winner: more resistant to powdery mildew and root rot diseases than other new lilacs on the market, Dream Cloud™ should be an absolute joy to grow! Prune immediately after flowering has finished giving time for next year’s buds to set.
