Dear Monrovia Expert,

I have been in search of a heat-tolerant lilacs for MANY years and I am frustrated with the lack of knowledge about them by MANY nurseries. I am pretty sure we are in Zone 10 here in Whittier, Ca. many of the lilacs that are concidered heat-tolerant grow from Zone 3 to Zone 7. I would like to know what lilacs will grow in my Zone of 10 and what care and requirements they need such as feeding and sun and so on. I have e-mailed serveral societies and nurseries and NO ONE of them has responded to my inquires yet! PLEASE HELP ME!
