The Q&A Archives: How to Grow Lilacs in the Low Desert

Question: How do I care for a lilac bush in the low desert?

Answer: The bad news is that it does not get cold enough for Lilacs to bloom and it gets too hot for them to be happy in the low desert.<br><br>The good news is that there are lots of other beautiful plants that thrive in the Sonoran Desert to fill the void. Buddleia (a.k.a Butterfly Bush a.k.a Summer Lilac) has a lovely fragrance and comes in an array of colors including pink, lilac, blue, purple and white. Another beautiful option is Salvi Clevelandii,which has clusters of fragrant lavendar blooms.
