Patrick A. Goss SC Zone 7a replied to Sandra Palmer's discussion Lilacs in the group Zone 8
"I am in sc, zone 7 close to the mountains. I bought some lilac bushes a couple of years ago. I was unaware that they needed some freeze time to encourage blooming. I have read that they bloom on three year old wood. So hopefully, if I'm lucky I…"

"I miss my lilacs, we just moved to Jacksonville, NC from CT and I bought 6 Crape Myrtle for the front yard to make up for the lilacs, but I will miss that lovely smell come spring. We may move to Lenoir, NC in the future, does anyone know if the…"

Carol Lynn Stojanik replied to Sandra Palmer's discussion Lilacs in the group Zone 8
"When I moved to Texas 37 years ago from Wisconsin was told Lilacs need to be frozen back every year. Since we do not have the bitter cold they will not grow. I find Crepe Myrtle a good substitute for the flower look but they do not have the smell…"

"There aren't any that I know of Sandra. The closes thing you can probably get is what they call a dwarf lilac which is really only a type of crepe myrtle."

Lilacs

I grew up in the south and midwest and I LOVE lilacs. Everything I read seems to say they won't bloom in zone 8 (which is probably why they aren't available in any of the local nurseries.) Does anyone know of any type of lilac which will flourish in zone 8?

Can I Combine

a kitchen garden, fruit trees, and a koi pond into a Japanese flavored garden? I'm still designing on paper, and I think I have a viable concept, but I certainly could use some input. We have a 48 x 25 foot area in the back yard, and while I am cutting a small amount out for a doggie potty area (my niece is a dog trainer who says that they can be trained to go in one little corner) and another little bit to be a composting area and garden tool storage, most of it is going to be garden.
