Lilac There's no sweeter spring fragrance than the blooms of this cottage-garden favorite. Lilac varieties come in all shapes and sizes, from dwarf shrubs to taller trees. One tip: The lilac blooms on old wood, so hold off on pruning until right after the same year's flowering is finished. Name: Syringa vulgaris Growing conditions: Full sun and well-drained soil Size: To 20 feet tall and wide Zones: 4-8

i so miss the beautiful lilacs in rhode island

Evocative of childhood memories, lilac fragrance need not mean making room for a large, leggy plant in your landscape. These days, there are some new dwarf lilacs to choose from. If you have the space, the old-fashioned common lilac can provide a lush, green screen when out of bloom or can be pruned and trained into a charming small tree. But for flower borders and containers, the dwarf Korean lilac and other newer hybrids bring lilac perfume up close.
