I am so excited! This is the first year my lilac has bloomed. It is a Madame Lemoine Lilac. I got this scrawny thing on clearance at Lowe's two summers ago. I nursed it, first in a pot, then when it looked like it would recover, I planted it in the ground next to the porch, but just out of reach of Oliver's rope. And now it has three lovely, fragrant white blooms.
I've been eyeing up the Lilac Primrose, which is yellow. And, the Volcan Lilac is really stunning, too. How many lilac shrubs are too many?
