The Syringa josikaea

The Syringa josikaea, also known as the Hungarian Lilac, is a beautiful, flowering small tree or shrub that is often used in parks or large gardens.


Growth Habit

The natural growth form of the Syringa josikaea is shrub-like. However, it is also possible to cultivate it as a small tree.

At Amitis, we supply the Syringa josikaea as a young tree with a single stem.


Leaf Color

The leaves of the Hungarian Lilac are dark green on the upper side and green-gray on the underside


Flowering and Fragrance

In the months of May-June, the Syringa josikaea blooms with plume-shaped flowers in a violet-pink color, spreading a sweet fragrance.


Bees and Butterflies

Due to its fragrant blossoms, the Hungarian Lilac serves as a food source for various bee and butterfly species.



The Syringa josikaea thrives well in almost any soil type, provided it contains sufficient nutrients, and the location is not excessively wet.


How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
