A very happy birthday to Stephanie.How I wish that lilacs DID live for hundreds of years in my garden. It would be an amazing memorial.
You and me both, EC:) Unfortunately, they aren't big fans of hot weather.
Happy birthday, Stephanie. I hope your day is amazing.No, I had no idea lilacs live that long. I moved one and it lived, but the next door neighbor who thought or decided it was on his property snuffed out its life. To this day, I miss the wonderful scent it gave off in spring each year.
Bad neighbor. Bad.I miss their scent too, Elizabeth. It's one of my favorites.
I suppose they can live for years just like any other trees. Happy Birthday Stephanie! Hugs, Valerie
Indeed:)Hugs received and returned.
I didn't know that Sandra, thanks for sharing. Happy Birthday to Stephanie.Yvonne.
My pleasure, Yvonne.
Ooh, fascinating. Had no idea they could live for hundreds of years like that!
Isn't that amazing?
Sure put humans to shame with lifespan.
Heh. It sure does, Pat:)
That's a long time for a bush.
It is indeed, Alex.
I had no idea that this beautiful flowering bush could live that long. I love this flower and the smell. A happy birthday to Stephanie!!
I do too, Birgit. Lilacs are my very favorite. When I lived in the Midwest, I had one outside my bedroom window. When the scent wafted in, it was glorious.
Happy Birthday, Stephanie 🎂🎁🎈 I had no idea lilacs could live that long. I love them, but they aggravate the hay fever.
Oh no. They give you hay fever? That's sick and wrong.
Wow, bushes can live a long time! Amazing.And Happy Birthday to Stephanie.
They sure can, Jamie:)
I love lilac bushes. My parents had a big, beautiful one in their front yard. I wish I'd had gotten a start before the house was sold.
I do too, Lizabeth. A cutting would have been wonderful.
They are pretty old
They are indeed, Adam:)
Aww, thank you for the birthday wishes!!! Sounds like I need to plant some lilacs...as long as they can survive me forgetting to water them...
Lilacs are sturdy. I think they'd do just fine as long as they didn't get too hot.Hope your bday has been wondrous.Hugs
I did not know that at all! A plant I might not kill! And a sweet one, too!
I bet lilacs would do well in your area, Jeanie.
honestly ? !! this is really neat; the lilac and the redwood !! ☺☺♥♥
Both are wondrous aren't they, FSG?
Glad you thought so, Christine:)
So trippy about long lived plants! Happy birthday Stephanie!
What else don't I know, Sandra? Hmm??
Our lilac bush on the farm was huge and grew every year. My brm was upstairs and the lilac scent was amazing. Its tallest branches almost reached my window.
That is cool! Happy Birthday Stephanie! Big Hugs Sandra!
I didn't know that about lilac bushes, they are a lovely flower.Happy birthday to Stephanie.All the best Jan
