I have no manners... Welcome! !

There are some lilacs that rebloom. Perhaps yours got the right conditions. Check out 'reblooming lilacs.'

Welcome to garden.org, Bruce. There are reblooming varieties of lilac. If this is a relatively young bush it could be a "Bloomerang" lilac that re-blooms in late summer.

Here's a link to one in our database. There are two other colors as well, dark purple, and pink. Lilac (Syringa Bloomerang® Purple)

Bruce23 Welcome!

May I suggest that if you like the bush and want more of them, you should definitely place something ( a sheet or planter trays with soil ) underneath your bush because it may be going to seed. This happened 2 years ago and I'm still trying to transplant them! I got a whole mess of 'em, but they're hard to dig out of landscape rock, if I had known that was gonna happen, I would have taken my own advice.
