I was browsing around after looking up that lilac and I was surprised to
see the Colorado State Extension lists lilac as a xeric shrub. It is in
the same lists with apache plume (Fallugia paradoxa) and rabbitbrush
(Chrysothamnus nauseosus), two shrubs in my dry garden. I just can't
imagine them living with such little water. But Colorado xeric and
California xeric must be two different things; no doubt Apache plume and
rabbitbrush are capable of living in much wetter conditions than I've
got them in, conditions where lilacs can manage to hang on.

I have it and it rebloomed for me. It's very small and I keep it in a
container here. No mildew. Not as fragrant as the lilacs that I remember

from home (Illinois and Wisconsin), but we can't grow many Lilacs here
the south.
