Both lilacs and pussy willows will grow in your region, but hot summer sunshine can be brutal. Try to plant them in a site where they will get morning sun and filtered afternoon shade. The lilac needs sun in order to bloom so 4-5 hours should make it happy. Both plants appreciate loose, well draining soils and regular deep watering (about twice a week in the hottest weather). Enjoy!
