Bought it last year and still have in a pot until I can plant it. About to move so I will plant in the ground when I get to a new house with the other lilac. Growing well and might look into getting a couple more lilacs.

I bought one 4 years ago and I have dug it up and moved it twice one time in the heat of summer and this year it came out so beautiful and smelled so good all the neighbors and friends wanted to know were I got it and I didn't want anyone else to have one lol but I did tell them the only place to get great product is Michigan bulb. Thank you love my Lilac going to order more as soon as possible. Karen from South Carolina.

It is maybe too soon to review, but I am positive it will turn out great because the tiny plant has become mature and sturdy. I still have it in the large pot. It has gained length of 1 foot in one month's time and the leaves are healthy, green, sturdy. Will soon transfer to my shrub bed.
