Syringa vulgaris ‘Belle de Nancy’ is a deciduous shrub with mid green foliage during the summer. It is a French lilac. It produces highly fragrant double flowers, which are upright panicles and pink-mauve when they first emerge. They gradually turn lilac-pink before taking on a blue hue during the summer months. This lilac is excellent for butterflies and bees. For the best flowering display, it is important to prune immediately after flowering. Plant in a moist, well drained soil in a sunny position. Syringa vulgaris ‘Belle de Nancy’ has an eventual height of 2.5m and a spread of 2m.
