Hundreds of lavender-pink florets appear on long, luxuriant panicles. After the first heavy bloom in late spring, given adequate moisture, Josee will continue to flower intermittently until frost. Josee is simply unbeatable when it come to fragrance. Just a single bouquet of the lush panicles will fill an entire room with perfume. Plus, Josee is great for attracting colorful, beneficial wildlife to your property. Beautiful butterflies and pollinating bees can't resist the fragrant flowers. Like trees, lilac bushes can live for a number of years, so you may look forward to years of colorful blooms. Deer tend to avoid. Syringa 'Josee'
