About Syringa x hyacinthiflora ‘Pocahontas’: An early-blooming lilac that does well in both balmy and icy climates, this deciduous shrub offers the features of common lilac but blooms a week or more earlier. It forms a rather open medium-sized to large shrub with oval mid-green leaves.
Plant this shrub in full to partial sun and well-drained mildly acidic to mildly alkaline soil. It is most floriferous and least lanky in full sun. With its exceptional cold hardiness and relatively low winter chilling requirement, it succeeds in the mild environs of California and the severe cold of the northern Great Plains. The early blooms may be damaged by late freezes. Mass ‘Pocahontas’ in screens, windbreaks or hedges, or use it singly in a shrub planting or mixed border. It is ideal near a path or patio, where its perfumed flowers can work their magic. The flowers are also wonderful in bouquets. Zones 2 to 7.
