    The lilac bush arrived with leaves on it already. I planted it about 1 month ago, and it is thriving!

    I just received it, so this review is regarding packaging and condition of the plant. The packaging was excellent, and the roots were well hydrated with buds on the plant.

    Have had ups and downs trying to keep a few different varieties of lilac growing in Los Angeles. This one seems to be doing okay so far, hope to see some blooms soon!

    We have planted the 3 lilacs and the 2 roses that you sent us free. Thank you. All 5 seem to be doing great. We are excited to watch them grow.

    My bare root lilacs arrived with almost no roots so I was worried, but an overnight soak followed by immediate planting the following day resulted in growth showing already! I ordered 5, received 6 which is nice because one isl struggling. I can hardly wait for my driveway to be lined with blooming lilacs each spring.
