RE: lilac question

Pam, is there any obvious signs of distress on the leaves such as rust or
other damage?  Is there any obvious ground pest damage?  Does your mother
have a neighborhood dog who might like her Lilac a little too much when he's
lifting his leg?  

This is the first year my lilac has bloomed for me at all.  I was tickled!
It finally grew tall enough to stretch out to enough sun light.  It was NOT
loaded, but it did bloom!  I know mine has been in too much shade, but it is
really hard to find enough sun here for the shrub.

Subject: [CHAT] lilac question

Since I don't grow these I could not answer mother's question yesterday.
She has a 5-6 year old lilac tree.  It bloomed beautifully last year.  This
year the blooms are very sparse, just a few little florets instead of a big
mop.  Her friend Marge who lives close by has one doing beautifully as all
the others around the area that she has seen.  Neither she or Marge prune
theirs or fertilize them.  They get the same amount of rain, light and such
and have the exact same soil.  So I could not figure out why mother's is not
doing well, she says it appears healthy otherwise.

Any ideas?
