Syringa - Lilac
Prized for their scent, lilac shrubs need at least six hours of sunlight a day to produce great flowers. They will grow in shadier locations but won’t flower as well. They need a moist, well-drained soil and require very little fertilizer – avoid an excess of nitrogen. They spread through suckers which you would need to control by simply cutting them back.

Exposure: At least 6 hours of sun.
