Re: shopping

Cutleaf Lilac is Syringa laciniata, but that may be a synonym.  I believe it
is a hybrid of the Afghan Lilac ( I have to go home to check the bot name on
that one) and another Lilac.  Cutleaf grows to 6 ft with a wider spread and
has dissected, 3- to 9-lobed leaves.  It flowers now, mid-spring.  Afghan
supposedly has a mature height of 18 inches, but my young plant (3yrs) has
reached that height already and has not yet bloomed.  It's leaves are like
the Cutleaf.

Josee is another hybrid, created in France.  It has small leaves and
flowers.  It's in bloom now, maybe I can get a picture to post.

At one time I did do some research on all of these to ascertain parentage
and sort out synonyms.  I just don't recall all the details now.  Maybe I
can find the information later.

I looked up your Japanese Tree Lilac, Syringa reticulata, and it says it can
grow to 30 feet, but is usually seen as a large shrub.  I wonder if the
warmer end of its zones would produce the height.
