Hi. I lived in So. Cal and was surprised when I moved into my house 8 years ago that there was a large lilac. It blooms well if we have cool winters. Early warm springs seems to do it in. Also, I have had good crops of blooms every other year. I don't know why. I just trimmed my bush in june/july for the first time and we'll see if I have more blooms this spring. I am completely afraid to do much of anything to this bush - it now reaches above the garage roof. I'm not much of a green thumb, but midwestern plants are my love and they don't grow well in California - Iris and Lilac ( the smells of the color purple) I wish I knew more about this beautiful plant!
