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'.
