The breeze blows in from one end of my house and I would love for the air to be filled with the scent of lilac, another fond memory of growing up.

Are the "fragrant" ones by chance Persian Lilacs?

I heard it takes 7 years before the lilac bush bears flowers. True?

BEST ANSWER: A couple of mine bloomed the first year. All 10 are blooming or have flower buds in their second year.

Great Stark's bargain lilacs
At just under $23 for a bundle of 10 lilacs, I was expecting twigs, but the bare root plants I got were all over 30 inches tall. A couple of them even put forth blossoms last summer, their first summer in the ground. We are having an early spring here, and the leaves are already in bud. I'm looking forward to watching these grow into a nice hedge with a heavenly scent when they are in bloom.

Great and hearty
One of our biggest challenges here is our wind and long winters. These fabulous lilacs took both head on and are going strong. Thank you.

My wife loves them
They are growing nicely and my wife loves them. I planted last year and they all survived and are spreading nicely. Hoping to get a full hedge in a year or 2.

Lots of bang
Purchased a bunch of these bare root last year and almost all came back and look wonderful. The few that didn't come back were replaced with their guarantee and look great !

Can't wait til they're old enough to bloom.
They arrived quickly, were easy to plant and they are thriving. I do not have a green thumb but that doesn't seem to matter to them. Can't wait till they are mature enough to bloom. My neighbor is thrilled that I planted them.
