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?
Kierstin S on Feb 28, 2016
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.
