Pollination Info

Pollination Information for Purple Glory Lilac (Syringa x hyacinthiflora 'Purple Glory')

Purple Glory Lilac is a variety of hybrid lilac that produces dense clusters of fragrant, purple flowers in late spring to early summer. The plant is known for attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds to the garden.

Being a self-fertile plant, Purple Glory Lilac can produce fruit and seeds without cross-pollination, but cross-pollination can increase yield and improve quality.

The pollination of Purple Glory Lilac occurs through the transfer of pollen from the male parts of the flower (stamens) to the female parts (pistil) through various means, such as wind, insects, and birds. Bees, in particular, are known to be important pollinators of this plant.

Cross-pollination can be achieved by planting another variety of lilac nearby, or by manually transferring pollen from one plant to another using a small brush or cotton swab.

To ensure optimal pollination and fruit production, it is recommended to plant Purple Glory Lilac in a sunny location with well-draining soil, and to maintain adequate moisture levels throughout the growing season.
