Lilac Tree Form – The prolific blooming shrub we are familiar with, but here we see it in tree form with a single trunk. They are highly fragrant and offered in colours from pale lilac to a stunning deep purple. Lilacs are beautiful and popular patio plants that are smothered in stunning panicles drawing droves of pollinators and butterflies! Tree form Lilacs have a rounded form and they have been trained to grow in a small, tree-like shape, with the primary plant grafted high atop a standard (single trunk). Blooming profusely at an early age, they are best used as a solitary accent or focal point in the garden. Being a relatively low maintenance tree, it should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of next season’s flowers.
Rose of Sharon Tree Form (Hibiscus syriacus)– Tree form plants are getting more popular and if you have ever seen a Rose of Sharon in bloom, then you know why. Reminiscent of the tropics, you will see an explosion of hibiscus like blooms in colours of white, red, blue or purple. Rose of Sharon is a late bloomer, flowering late summer and blooms until first frost providing exceptional interest when other plants are starting to wane.
