I just bought two lilacs ant want to know how long before they bloom??we are 78 yrs. old and would like to see them bloom
Sissy L on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sissy, you have plenty of time to see them bloom! Of the ones I bought three years ago, one is in full sun and blooming freely. Magnificent. A second one is healthy and bushy but without blooms, mainly because I think there is more shade. I fully expect it will bloom next year.
I planted this last year and it appeared to die l cut off a small section the wood was green I hope it comes up from the roots this year or am I dreaming?
Kelly on Apr 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We cut ours back as well. It does have some leaves coming on this spring though. I thought it had died too.
