3 Ways to Grow Lilas - wikiHow

Choose the type of lilac bushes you are going to plant. Visit your local nursery to choose the variety of lilac you are going to grow. Besides the color, it takes into account the height of the already grown plants. Some varieties, such as the Palibin or Superba shrub, grow 1.5 to 1.8 m tall. Others, such as the Syringa reticulata tree, grow from 6.1 to 9.1 m tall.

  • You can buy bare or potted root plants from your local nursery or a company that supplies plants by mail. The workers in your local nursery can recommend the varieties of lilac that will grow better where you live.
  • You can also transplant seedlings, or stolons from a friend's or neighbor's shrub. Dig and transplant the seedlings of a friend's or neighbor's shrub during spring, just as their leaves begin to sprout or just the small leaves open. Choose seedlings that are at least 30 cm high. Use a shovel to unearth them, making sure they have as many roots as possible. Cut the stolons with the edge of the shovel to separate the seedling from its parent.
