Pekin Lilac, also known as Peking Tree Lilac, is a stunning plant with a bushy, spreading, and rounded habit. It typically grows as a small tree or large shrub, reaching a height of 15-20 feet and a width of 15 feet. Its showy, fragrant, creamy-white flowers bloom in mid-spring and are arranged in clusters up to 6 inches long. The plant's appealing bark - a rich brown that sometimes exfoliates - adds to its beauty. Its leaves are dark green and ovate-shaped, with no significant fall color. This plant is native to northern China and can tolerate deer, rabbits, and slopes. It prefers a pH range of 5 to 7.5 and normal to moist watering. It can be affected by pests and diseases, so take care in its care. The Pekin Lilac can add beauty to any garden with its unique and attractive features, which should be considered more often.
