This is one of the tallest lilacs, capable of reaching 25'-30' at maturity. It has lush, large leaves and gorgeous pale blue flowers on long spikes. It does well in informal hedges and screens or as a garden specimen. Summer water will likely cause its demise, so plant it in well-drainng soil where it will not get supplemental water once it is established.
