I saw what seemed to be a lilac tree. Well, it smelled like lilac but it was shaped like a lollypop. Do you know anything about it?
Thank You,

It could be a lilac which has been carefully pruned to maintain a topknot of foliage and a bare trunk. It is possible to prune in this manner, but it is a very labor intensive undertaking. I agree, though, such shrubs are quite intriguing!
