Located with a distant view of the River Deben in Suffolk and open to meadows. I am trying to merge the garden with the wild indigenous plants.

We have a Lilac festival every year in Rochester, NY. There are so many hybrids of lilacs and other flowering bushes!

What a fabulous plant! Best view of the Lilac is from the Meadow because the garden side is a bit sparse, having been drastically pruned to gain several metres of garden space.
