Ivory Pillar Japanese Lilac Tree

  • Cream Colored Flower Panicles
  • Lengthens the Tree Flowering Season
  • Fantastically Fragrant Blossoms

There is nothing better than walking outside on a spring day and marvelling at all the flowering trees and their sweet scents. These trees flower early which can sometimes lead to summer looking a tad boring in comparison. If you’re looking for a way to extend your flowering tree season, then you need an Ivory Pillar™ Japanese Lilac Tree (Syringa reticulata ‘Willamette’).

The Ivory Pillar™ Japanese Lilac Tree in a beautiful take on the original Japanese Lilac Trees. This specimen has a much more narrow and upright form but the same amount of cream colored flowers!

Come early summer, when you neighbor’s trees are all done blooming for the year, this Ivory Pillar™ Japanese Lilac Tree will absolutely burst with panicles of white flower clusters that can reach up to 12 inches in length! Not only are the flowers a wonderful sight, but they are also deliciously fragrant. The sweet smell of lilac is sure to leave you delighted!

This tree is an appealing sight even when not in bloom. The glossy green leaves of the Ivory Pillar™ Japanese Lilac Tree are the perfect complement to its flowers and many of your other flowers of your garden! These deciduous leaves sit atop a handsome red-brown trunk with cherry tree-like bark.

Not only will this tree bring your neighbors by for a quick peek at the still blooming beauty, it will also bring the pollinators around! Butterflies will flutter from blossom to blossom looking for a tasty treat and you may even catch a glimpse of a hummingbird stopping by for a snack!

When planting, you’ll want to place this tree somewhere with well draining soil in full sun. It will make a fantastic border tree to your garden or a lovely accent for your side yard! The Ivory Pillar™ has a narrower, more upright form, meaning you can fit this specimen into spots you may not be able to fit the original Japanese Lilac Tree. One thing is for sure, you’ll want to plant it somewhere you can witness its excellent flower show and take in its incredible fragrance!

The Ivory Pillar™ Japanese Lilac Tree takes any yard it graces to the next level and elongates the tree flowering season. You’ll love it and your neighbors will want it.
