We've got plain old lilacs in a few places - good workhorse shrubs, with showy flowers in mid-spring, solid mounding foliage rest of the year.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|Al Palmiotto email@example.com||Feb 09, 2009||Can I grow the syringa vulgaris in southern California? I know it isn't recommended choosing this flower with out a cold season, but I truly love this flower/tree and I would take any suggestions that you might have regading the maintenance and care of this flower. Bottom line--can it survive in this area?
I'm guessing it would probably survive - but I don't know if it would flower well. Better to ask someone with experience in your type of climate. Good luck!
