I want to have lilacs on my farm to diversify product offerings.
Shawndreia D on Mar 26, 2020
I think the blue will compliment the deep purple that I have. It is also for a hedge

is this a tree or a shrub ?
john c on May 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It is a shrub, but if you're handy with pruners, you can train it to a tree shape. That's what all lilac "trees" are - pruned shrubs.
I am looking for a blue lilac but am also looking for a lilac that doesn't shoot up suckers?
Kathy K on Apr 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I planted one of these two years ago, and it's grown well; it's about four feet tall, and so far I haven't seen any suckers. I never considered suckers a problem with other lilacs, as the plants replenished themselves when the old woody branches died off or broke in storms. Also, some suckers are actually shoots that can be transplanted or shared...
Can I keep them pruned to about 4 feet to 5 feet tall for a shrub ?
J.j. G on May 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Although I'm not an expert, I am a Master Gardener. I would think that
you could prune this to the height and width that you'd like without
any damage to the lilac.
I live in Myrtle Beach, SC. It gets very hot here I. The summer. I???ll it survive the heat?
KAREN on May 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you live in growing zone 8, yes, it will. Enter your zip code in the Zone Compatability section above to see what zone you live in.
How big are the bushes?
Debra Y on Apr 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The age and size information for our blueberries is as follows: 4??? pot: 6-12 months old and 4??? tall; Small gallon container: 2 years old and 12??? tall. Our blueberries will typically take 2-3 years after planting to reach maturity and bear fruit.
How tall is the lilac bush you ship out?
susan s on Jan 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Our bare root lilacs ship out approx. 18-24 inches.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
How long does it take to grow full size, and how tall will it grow?
Michael K on May 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The mature height is shown above - this shrub grows to approximately 10 - 12' tall x 8' wide. At a rate of about 12-18 inches per year, it will take about 7-10 years to reach full height. Lilacs live as long as 100 years, so it's worth the wait.

Does Not Like Cold?
After what seemed like a cold winter (low was -20 degF) the bush is struggling.
I bought two of them, one survived very well the other almost died back. We
are in zone 5.

It has hardly grown at all and has produced no flowers. Perhaps it will do better in the coming years. I hope so.

Lovely and Fragrant
I ordered these bushes because they are double flowered and reminded my husband of his childhood in Poland. We put them in last summer and all three bushes came up very nicely and had one branch with a really nice Bunch of blossoms this year. Expecting more and more every year of course.

waiting patiently
We had a tough winter this year and I'm assuming that's why I haven't seen much growth yet. It did survive and I can't wait to see some blooms next year.
