Can Sensation Lilac be Kept Reasonably Small?

I really really want to plant my Sensation Lilac. I've had it in a pot for a few years.

However, for it to be in my new bed, it would have to stay about 4 feet wide and 6 or 7 feet tall.

Can I do that, or will it sacrifice the blooms?

Mine has never grown much bigger. As long as you don't prune in spring they shud bloom. Prune right after blooming is done

Good to know. It also seems to be a really slow grower compared to my other lilac.

Thanks!

All Sensation should be grafted, so they stay small(er) in size and take a while to get established.

I eventually got blooms the size of my forearm on my Sensation though. They were awesome.
