Description

Dwarf Scent and Sensibility™ Pink lilac is wider than it is tall, and produces copious dark pink buds which open to soft, lilac-pink flowers. It is very fragrant. Scent and Sensibility came out of the same breeding program as Bloomerang® lilac, and although it does have repeat flowers through the summer, it does not rebloom quite strongly enough to be part of the Bloomerang series. However, the habit, color, and fragrance were exceptional enough to merit introduction on their own.
