We have one of those Mid to Late Lilac varieties.
It blooms early to mid June. It is dark in bud and when it blooms it is more of a pink than purple.
Syringa x prestoniae ‘Donald Wyman’
I used to order bareroot trees and shrubs from a Nursery in Montana…often they would throw in a few extras that may or may not live. This one lived. Trees and shrubs in pots are labor intensive…we phased them out after about five years. They also had to be stored just so over the winter….basically a pain in the butt.
I hate to see former customers this time of year. “I bet you miss the greenhouse business?” NO. “ How many plants do you have now?” In pots …none. “REALLY.”
Really…you should never make a business out of your favorite hobby…you will burn out.
