Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Choose a location in full sun or partial shade. ‘Krasavitsa Moskvy’ prefers rich, moist, slightly acidic soils but is easily grown in average, well-drained soil. This plant needs good air circulation, as well. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. The Lilac transplants easily. To the extent practicable, promptly remove faded flower panicles before seed set. Best grown in cool summer climates.

Pests or Diseases: The plant grows in full shade, but flowering is poor and powdery mildew is likely.
