Last year I purchased a lilac bush for my back yard. I've always wanted one and could never get one to grow. This one was larger than most I had planted and looked to be quite healthy. Of course when I bought it, it had already finished blooming for the year. Being so hot and dry last summer it took a bit of a beating. Even though I frequently watered it I wondered if it would make it.
I'm happy to say that the other day I went out to check on it and saw plenty of buds
