Re: The Liliacs are starting to come out!!

One year about 10 years ago my SO trimmed our lilac bush in the fall and after that it never bloomed for 7 years.  Now it blooms about 6 weeks after all the others around here bloom.  The only thing I can think of is that that was the wrong time to trim it.

Re: The Liliacs are starting to come out!!

We drove from Show Low to Phoenix today and everything in the desert was in bloom (especially the Sauguaro cacti ( best bloom season in more than twenty years!).

They are in full bloom in Santa Fe and are gorgeous.   I've never seen lilacs that are huge trees before.

Re: The Liliacs are starting to come out!!

What is a mock orange tree?

 

I love the scent of Jasmin.

That would be a beautiful name, btw.

 

I haven't actually smelled the scent of lilac.

I'll have to smell a scent of it at our local nursery.

I have some lilac bushes in my back yard.  When I open the windows in the kitchen, the smell drifts in.  It smells heavenly...

My lilac bush is in bloom right now.  I have a big vase of them in my living room.  Love the smell.

Mock Orange is a shrub, lovely smell. I also have 3 Miss Kim Lilacs, don't have a huge flower, but scents the whole yard.

I've been noticing that quite a few QVC fashion items, mostly tops, have been offered in Lilac (or sometimes  called 'Lavender', in a lighter tint/shade).
