Lilac 'Krasavitsa Moskvy' which means "Beauty of Moscow" is a tough, all use plant. It is weather resistant, very hardy, and has a long blooming period. This lilac has overly large, double, very fragrant flowers, with pink buds that open to pure white, which gives an uncommon bicolor effect.

This lilac, like all others, likes full sun to partial shade with good air movement to keep mildew at bay, because in more stagnate, shady conditions, mildew can be a problem. Plant on a bit of a mound to insure good drainage.

Overall, Krasavitsa Moskvy makes a great landscape shrub as well as a superb cut flower.
