Sheliah from high atop North Raymond is back with a great picture of one of my absolute favorite lilacs, the Sensation Lilac. The white bordered flower is one of the prettiest ones ever. And the Sensation Lilac grows so well here in Maine.
Sheliah does her gardening high atop the hills of Raymond ME and if you can grow a green garden there you can grow one anywhere!
Here is Sheliah:
"I LOVE lilac's! I have three favorites. Monge, Beauty of Moscow, and this one that is pictured the Sensation. I wrote about the dark, dark purple Monge a while back. (Click The Monge Lilac for a great article about the Monge lilac and general lilac care). The Beauty of Moscow has pink buds and opens into a double white. It smells as good as the Old Fashion Lilacs which do smell the best. The draw back of the Sensation is that it does not have much of a smell - I can look past that because - look how beautiful it is!!!"
