hi. i am a gardener who has been without a garden for 10 years. now i
have some small beds in less than ideal conditions but i am thrilled
to be digging and planting.
in a field near my apt. i saw a beautiful low lying lilac. probably no
taller than 4 feet but well developed, very wide (perhaps 12 feet)
with quite pale purple flowers and this lovely silvery furry sort of
halo throughout the whole bush. two questions...
can anyone recommend a site that will show pics of the full shrub, not
just the blossoms?
is there a way to snip a small shoot from this plant with any hope of
what i have read about propagating lilacs says i would have to dig
into the root structure and remove a section. i am not going to do
this for fear of sickening the plant and besides, it is just so
perfect sitting in a field as if it were left behind by some outer
anyway, any help would be hugely appreciated.
