Lilacs have always been one of my favorite flowers. It may be because they remind me of Spring, or maybe it's because they remind me of my lilac prom gown that I wore when we posed in front our family's lilac shrubs. Either way, I was thrilled to know lilacs flourished in Illinois after being unable to plant them for so many years in California. I planted a lilac the very first growing season, but it has yet to bloom four years later. So much for flourising! Jane on SCS recommended treating it with Triple Phosphate, so I'll definitely give that a try in hopes of blooms next year!
