Answer: Most lilacs require a pronounced winter chill in order to produce their lovely spring blooms, but Syringa vulgaris 'Lavender Lady' was developed for your mild winter climate and will perform well in your garden. Spring or fall are traditionally the best times to plant or transplant trees and shrubs. Temperatures are cool at these times and rainfall usually abundant, both of which will help new plants become quickly established. Blossoms last only a few weeks, but their vibrant color and wonderful fragrance make them memorable.
