Lilacs are very large shrubs or small trees. They are grown for their beautifully scented, conical shaped flowers, whose fragrance fills the air from late spring to early summer. The leaves are heart shaped, and 'Andenken an Ludwig Spath' has lovely slender panicles of dark, purple-red flowers that are very attractive. To encourage big flowers and to keep the plant's size in check, prune out a third of the branches each year. The Royal Horticultural Socety have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
