Will a lilac bush grow in Phoenix, AZ? I've seen some in yards but not very many plus have been unable to find them in the local nurseries.

Lilacs will grow in the alkaline soil in your region, but will not be a dependable performer. Lilacs need a pronounced winter chill to produce flowers. There are a few hybrids developed by Descanso Gardens that will bloom without a winter chill. Ask your local nursery about ordering 'Lavender Lady', 'Blue Skies' or 'Forrest K. Smith'.
