Comments about Josée Lilac:

The plant was very small dried out with no leaves when it arrived. There will be no way of knowing if it will survive until next Spring. I have enjoyed many products from Gardener's Supply, but their live plants have much do be desired. I have been very dissapointed with the lilac.

Comments about Josée Lilac:

The Josee lilac was one of the first plants I purchsed to plant around my deck. As a novice gsardener, I did not do a good job of followng the directions for planting. It was planted in late spring. the soil is poor (clay - and nothing was added to it), it gets extrememly wet in the spring, it was planted too close to the deck however it is in a sunny location. The first year it did not bloom, the second year it bloomed once. This year was its 3rd summer. Without heavy pruning it will get well over 6 feet tall. It had heavy blooms twice this year and is starting to bud again, although I don't think there is time for the 3rd bloom to finish before frost (zone 5). I couldn't be happier with the bush and just purchased a second one for the other side of the deck.

      Comments about Josée Lilac:

      I planted the lilac according to instructions in a very sunny location with good soil drainage and watered it as per instructions, however within a month the plant has died. This is the third or forth(?) time I have tried to grow this variety of lilac bush (all from Gardener's Supply Co.) and all have died within a month or so.

          I bought Josee Lilac for lasting lilac fragrance[...]Probably 3 or more years until it blooms. If it pans out as advertized it will be worth thr price but too early to tell.

          NOT for Zones 8-9

          Comments about Josée Lilac:

          Advertised as hardy to Zone 9. Tried it twice (once in the spring and then a replacement plant in the fall) in Zone 8B and it did not survive. As soon as the temp exceeded 100 (which it does frequently in the higher zones), it died.

          Josee Lilac's size and almost all summer long flowers and fragrance make for a lovely combo.

          I have another type of Lilac with purple flowers and they are doing really good in my yard. Thought I would try this kind since it is another color. So far so good!

              I was worried about buying a lilac given the extreme heat of summers in South Carolina, but this lilac has performed like a star! It grows in poor sandy soil with no irrigation for 5 weeks in the summer. You don't get better than that. Thanks, Gardener's Supply, for another great product!

                I bought four (yes four, do the math). They all managed to survive the first year but the flowers were not spectacular and the plants didn't grow. The second spring they started out just fine until one day that got somewhat warm (not hot). All the leaves dried off and fell and I was left with 4 plants full of twigs. I don't think they ever recovered from the warm day. They are still in the ground but I suspect they will not come back next spring. HUGE waste of money and time.

                    [...] they looked like they were dying when I opened the box...they never recovered and I pulled them out of the ground completely dead less than two weeks later! Total waste of money and they weren't cheap.
