    I love lilacs....have planted many here on our farm....you can stand outside and smell the wonderful fragrance on the wind...oh,wish they didn't bloom such a short time! But that makes you long for and enjoy them more, I guess. We have one ancient white lilac that was as tall as our second story window...have gradually pruned it back and it is now starting to bloom well...DH thinks it smells better than the purple but in a blindfolded test he could tell the difference!!!!!!!!!

    Hi big rockpile;
    The lilac bush is gorgeous! My Granny had one at the end of her porch. The fragrance of that lilac bush was heavenly. Unfortunately I now live too far South to grow a traditional lilac. The variety recommended for my agricultural zone is the Persian Lilac, I'm not sure that it has the "lilac" fragrance. I'm trying to find one at the local nurseries but so far no success.
    Have a blessed day.
