You all can't even begin to understand how ecstatic I am about these blooms. When I moved in 3 years ago, I didn't know what this bush was so I cut it down (OOPS!). Then when it started growing back someone asked me why I cut it down cuz it was a lilac bush. So I let it grow back. This is the first year it has really bloomed. They are few & far between & kind of small but I'm thoroughly enjoying them...now that I know what they are! Haha
@uaskigyrl - that looks quite large, to even attempt to move! If there is a tree or something blocking more sun.... but otherwise, it may have been planted in the wrong place from the start? @mikethegardener @MelanieAt @jamesshobbs
Just baby it. It's definitely worth it. I love lilacs but unfortunately I don't think they grow here. I've never seen any in this north Texas town. Where I'm from in New Mexico there was one on almost every property I lived in.
