As a native New Englander transplanted in the Dallas, TX area I deeply miss my old lilac bushes. After doing some research online, I was very sad to learn that most lilacs need a cold summer and acidic dirt to grow in and they might grow but will not bloom in warmer climates.
THEN I found the Miss Kim Lilacs online which is supposed to do well in the southern states where other lilacs have difficulty. They are supposed to be able to grow in zones 3-8 (I'm zone 8 ). On an impulse, I bought 3 2-gallon plants online.
But now I'm worried if I'll have trouble growing these. I am by NO means an experienced gardener, I only have a sad little flower patch in my backyard with sunflowers and misc other wildflowers and such. Has anybody has this type of lilacs? Am I doomed to not having these beautiful fragrant flowers in the south?
