Syringa ‘Red Pixie’ is a dwarf, compact, spreading, long-flowering, deciduous shrub, with small, broadly elliptic, bright green to glossy dark green leaves. Clusters of small, fragrant, trumpet-shaped, deep pink flowers, opening from red buds and fading to pale pink, bloom in late spring and then again in summer and early autumn. Lilac ‘Red Pixie’ thrives in average, fertile, humus-rich, alkaline to neutral, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. It is tolerant of heat, drought, and light shade, but best flowering is achieved in full sun. It prefers cold winter climates because it needs winter chill for the buds to mature. Very resistant to frost, but late frosts may damage the flower buds. Tolerant of urban conditions. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Low maintenance plant. Syringa ‘Red Pixie’ is an abundantly flowering shrub. Perfect as a specimen plant or shrub border in informal, cottage, and urban gardens. Excellent for informal hedges or foundational plantings.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
