The Q&A Archives: Syringa

Question: I have a syringa bush and have never gotten any flowers on it. Could you kindly help me in this matter?

Answer: Syringa, or lilac bush, can take several years to become established before it will grace you with flowers. I think it's worth the wait, though! Lilacs grow best in full sunshine and flower best where they receive a pronounced winter chill. You didn't list your hometown so I don't know whether or not it's getting the required cold winter weather. Just be patient with your lilac. It should flower within the next 2-3 years.
