Love the fragrance. I do not like the fancy new varieties, It was hard to find the original lilac - nothing else smells quite as sweet.

I chose this to attract pollinators & to bring sweet smelling breezes. These are also serving as a hedge boarder to keep neighbors off the lawn. Haha ð???

Are the "fragrant" ones by chance Persian Lilacs?
Kierstin S on Feb 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Fragrant Purple lilac is Syringa vulgaris while Persian lilacs are Syringa × persica.
I heard it takes 7 years before the lilac bush bears flowers. True?
Moreland G on Mar 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Took 2 years for mine to bloom. Worth the wait, they smell fantastic!
Deer Resistance?
John P on Feb 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Deer will eat anything if they're hungry enough, but lilacs are not favored by either deer or rabbits.

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.

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 !

great condition and thriving
The lilacs I received were larger than I anticipated and in better condition than I had expected. A year later they are thriving and growing rapidly.

Very healthy plants
These Lilac trees are very healthy. They arrived with buds and after planted they turned into full lives immediately. New leaves came out and all 10 grow happily. I just need to find out how fragrant the flowers are.

Perfect
We planted 20 seedlings last year, they shipped with all the instructions as we don't have green thumbs which was great.. Took some nurturing that first year but this year they came back in full bloom we even had 2 plants with actual lilacs. Out if 20 we received we have 2 that aren't quite as bountiful as the others but the are coming along. Looking forward to the next few years watching them grow!

Love them!
I planted my lilacs last spring and they've grown so fast in just a yr. I've kept mulch around them constantly. Very impressed with the quality and quantity for the price. I bought 10 more this year. I now have 20 lilacs in my yard and I can't wait till they're in full bloom. Thanks so much Starks Bro.

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.
