Are lilac trees difficult to grow? I have read that they are good for attracting various moths and butterflies, but that they need full sun to flourish. We have a shady area, so I would like to know if anyone has a good lilac tree growing in shade and any advice please, thanks.
Another thought....they do grow well from lower regions after damage, so much so that from one Angle I have one that looks all bottom and top with little in the middle.
Lucky I have some layered cuttings that look great now at least three foot, each with planned destination.
I'm sure being in pots will slow their progress, time I had them in the ground!
Apparently you can get white ones too, but ours are lilac, despite one being in a white garden.
