About our Lilacs
We have more than 30 varieties of lilacs. Some bloom at the regular lilac time (around mid-May), some bloom a bit earlier, some a bit later.
We have traditional-sized lilacs, compact lilacs, some that stay under five feet in height, and others that can grow to 40 feet! We even have some that will re-bloom later in the summer and early fall.
And colors – there are whites, blues, violets, deep purples and pink varieties.
North Country Hardy
All our varieties grow here on Moore's Hill. All our plants have proven they can handle a North Country winter.
Come and Visit, and Tour our Lilac Display Garden
On a beautiful hilltop setting, we have created a unique lilac display garden, with more than 40 different varieties. Established with young plants starting in 2011, the lilacs are now old enough to show off their blooms. Come and enjoy the garden, and the beautiful views, during the scheduled open hours, or call for an appointment. We can also arrange special times for groups to visit.
We have plants of nearly all of the varieties available for purchase. We have plants in sizes ranging from four-inch pots to 6 gallon pots, and some even larger. We work to keep pricing fair and reasonable.
Our lilac headquarters is in the farm's original 1830's barn with hand-hewn beams.
Plants available for purchase range in size from small young plants to quite large.
