Ivory Silk Lilac Tree


If you are looking for something different in your neighborhood that stands out, look no further!

Lilac shrubs are probably familiar to you, but here is a new twist on the Lilac bush that you should try.

The Ivory Silk Lilac Tree (Syringa reticulata ‘Ivory Silk’) grows much taller and wider than other Lilac trees.

Despite the fact that it still has fragrant blooms, the Super-Size version is a bit larger.

The Ivory Silk Lilac Tree is an ideal option if you love Lilacs, but want to make a bigger impact with it.

During late June, the tree bears huge, foot long flower panicles, which are not the flowering shrub that you may be accustomed to seeing in the gardens.

Adding this small tree to your Lilac collection will extend the season of blooming for a long time after the other Lilacs have finished. Fresh, sweet fragrance fills the air in early summer when delicate white flower bunches perfume your entire garden.

The shade from the large leaves will remain for a long time after the blooms have passed, so even after the blooms have passed, you can still enjoy the fresh shade of the trees.

There is no doubt in your mind if you look at this photo that you have seen a very special Lilac. A beautiful Ivory Silk Lilac Tree will be densely adorned with beautiful, dark green leaves throughout the summer months, which will be a refreshing sight in the midst of the summer heat.

You will also be able to enjoy this deciduous tree even when it has dropped its leaves because of the attractive, reddish-brown bark.

If you have a landscape with dark red bark in the autumn and winter months, this will really add a nice dimension and texture to the landscape.

In the northern hemisphere, gardeners who are on the lookout for a breathtaking accent tree should strongly consider this magnificent, fragrant Lilac Tree variety.

Consider the excellent evergreen Douglas Fir tree (Pseudotsuga menziesii), as an attractive and sturdy addition to your landscape.

Pseudotsuga, or “False Hemlock” is the scientific name for this beautiful tree belonging to the genus Pseudotsuga.

You can call it whatever you want, but we bet you will enjoy running your hand over the soft, blue-green needles.
