I have to tell you that gives me quite a visual! Pretty funny!

Severely bipolar and committed suicide is all I know.

OK, so if you wanted to name a plant after me, you could call it a
Morrissyosis or Kittyana, or by Zem's definition a Hootiana. So, was Lewis
a syringa? Did he play a panpipe?

That is terribly confusing to non-Idahoans, Judy.  You are saying
they
use
the botanical name for the genus of Lilacs as a common name for a
Mock
Orange?
And... if they named it after a guy named Lewis, then why isn't it
called
Lewis? (or Lewisia to make it even stranger)?  Was his name Syringa
Lewis?

Mock orange. Syringa, Idaho's state flower is Philadelphis lewisii,
named
for the explorer who found it here. I noticed this morning that
newly
opened
blooms on the single are more fragrant than the older blooms.

Judy, are you talking about Lilacs (Syringa) or Mock Orange
(Philadelphus)?

I have 2. One I bought as a "native" syringa. They lied. It is a
lovely
double, but not what I wanted at the time so it got chopped,
ripped
out
&
moved to the far SW corner of my property, full sun. It has
never
grown
tall
again, but is getting wider, blooms profusely & smells heavenly.
The
other
is a local syringa, Philidelphus lewisii, single like the ones
in
the
woods
and smells even better. Sucker from one in a friend's yard. It
is
on
the
east side full sun most of the day. Wish I could send you some
of
the
perfume. Want to try a cutting?

Kitty,
What did you do to get it to bloom?  I have had one about 25
years
ago
that
was wonderful... huge, smelled wonderful and bloomed every
year.
I
have
tried now for 4-5 years to get one to bloom but never have had
one
bloom.
I
moved it this last fall and it lived but still no blooms.
I moved it into more sun so I thought that might help.

We were supposed to get rain Fri-Sat-Sun, none so far except
Thurs
overnight.  I spent about 6 hrs in the garden yesterday and
got
a
few
things
done.  While looking for spaces to tuck things in, lo and
behold,
my
Mock
Orange was blooming!  No fragrance, but at least it bloomed.
It's
a
sprawling, leggy thing with little to its credit, so it may
still
get
yanked
someday.  But after trying for 15 yrs to get a Philadelphus
to
flower,
I
did
derive some pleasure from this one blooming in its third
year.

Thanks to Rich's rain dance..  we had a good amount of rain
last
night
so
weeding will be easier.  Hey anyone want some very invasive
BAMBOO!!!??
Have
to go cut some down..  No I wasn't the one who  planted
it..
the
owners
before
me did, and my guess is they knew nothing about  gardening.
