Introduced in 1909, and just as popular today as it was then, 'Monge' is a late blooming French Lilac featuring abundant showy panicles of wonderfully fragrant deep reddish-purple flowers. The flowers are excellent for cutting and enjoying indoors, and the butterflies love them. The blue-green, heart shaped leaves remain attractive through summer. A tall grower 10 to 12 feet high and equally as wide, Monge can be grown as a large shrub or lower branches can be removed to form a highly attractive small tree. One of those plants that will always have you looking forward to spring, plant this sensory wonder near a window or patios, decks and other outdoor living spaces where the pretty blooms and fragrance can be enjoyed. Cold hardy to -40F and deer resistant. Get all the details below!
