How To Plant Declaration Lilac
Easy to grow in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates light shade, but best bloom is in full sun. Do not plant in full shade or in soggy soils. Prefers moist, fertile, organically rich, slightly acidic to slightly alkaline soils with good drainage. Do not crowd with other plants, air circulation helps keep the foliage looking good.
How To Water
You should water your Declaration Lilac after planting. Water again when the top inch of soil becomes dry usually once or twice per week.
How To Fertilize
Feed your Declaration Lilac in early spring before new arrives with our Elements Starter Plant Food.
How To Prune
Prune as needed immediately after flowering. Pruning spent flower heads off in late spring will improve the health of the plant by preventing plant energy from being used in developing seed heads. Annually pruning out suckers from the base will help keep your lilac tidy and keep it from spreading but this is optional.
