Purchased this as a 2-gal plant from Home Depot last year. Survived my winter, no problem. I will have blooms this year, but it's such a small plant: only about 18" around. Cute little plant. The pictures I have posted this year (2015) were taken at Nick's Gardens. They had this lilac in a "tree" form (bush on top of a long "trunk" of a stem, not sure how that would survive winters).
