    I got one last fall and planted not expecting much -- we have harsh winters and this last one was bad. I lost lavender supposedly hardy to zone 9, but this lilac leafed out this spring and bloomed -- beautiful but more violet than the photo.

    Bought 2 in 09, ran one over with a mower. The following year a friend weed-whacked it. In spite of all the abuse Josee came back very well and is almost as large as the other one! Will not bloom in the heat of summer, so from mid-June to August expect nothing. However it did have some nice blooms in Spring and a smaller flush in the fall of this year. Each year the blooms are bigger and better as the plant grows. This year I am expecting a nice show, and hope to have enough to bring them in the house to enjoy. I bought a 3rd last year, also got the weed whack by the friend who couldn't tell the difference between it and a weed. It bloomed in the fall as well, delightfully surprising me. I thought I would have to wait another year to see blooms on it like I did with the first 2. In Michigan, expect only Spring and Fall bloom.


    Impressed!

    My plant is in its 4th season & blooms beautifully even after being transplanted last fall. It only gets maybe 1/2 day of sun. I love the fact that its compact. I want to buy more. I live in zone 6.

    I received 2 plants in Zone 6. I had to keep them inside for weeks, impatiently waiting for nights to be warm enough to get them started. Springhill advised at least 55 degree nights, for at least 2-3 days for them to get established. I had to water them in the house a few times, and was careful not to overwater. One I planted in a deep hole filled with perlite, the other I put in a pot, also filled with perlite, as a back-up plant, as I have a very tiny yard with only a small area of full sun. Both plants are doing fine. I will not be disappointed if they don't flower until next year; one must be realistic about plants and not expect miracles. The shrubs survived cooler nights once they had time to grow a healthy root system. I am very pleased. I think people don't follow the instructions carefully as far as planting, which is not the nursery's fault.


    Great Lilac!

    When I received the plants in the mail they were each a tiny stick. I was doubtful, but I planted them. They lived through last summer in Phoenix - a miracle in itself - and now they are about 12 high and two branches each and blooming! Unbelievable!! This is the only lilac that will grow here in the low desert.


    Awesome plants for even the beginning gardener

    I purchased five of these bushes five years ago now. they have all grown to their limit, and I get endless enjoyment out of them. they do bloom 3 - 4 times during the season, and make the perfect hedge to block the alley from sight and noise. these were the first permanent plants I ever invested in, and I've never been disappointed in them. I constantly get compliments from anyone who sees them.


    perfectly delighted

    This is a gorgeous lilac that truly is reblooming. I have 2 and they bloomed most of last summer and fall. It's beautiful and tends to grow rather quickly.

    This spring I bought 22 lilacs. The plants were small but very healthy, 5-8 tall. Every single one took off right after planting. Unfortunately, I've lost 3 to bunnies, but others are doing very well and most of them grew to 2-3' so far and blooming again, while it's September in Chicago! I cannot wait to enjoy them for the years to come. Thank you, Sprinhills!

    I bought 2 of thim and 1 died the other 1is doing VERY well.It has not bloomed yet but it grew 1foot Very fast trick is water! It luvs water in the hot summer months the most important TIP when transplanting go up in pot size gradually don't just put it in a big pot,it will put all of its energies trying to grow to fit that big pot,that could lead to it dieing or won't produce at all.I won't plant it in the ground until it gets a little bigger ,by that time it will be big enough to with stand the weather changes. (WATER,POT SIZE that's the trick).

    This is the 3rd summer I have these plants. They seem to appear to be healthy, however they only bloomed once per year. They are in full sun and I water when it doesn't rain. What's the trick?

    Planted this last year at a new home in a drought. It lived which was amazing in itself. This is it's second year. It bloomed at 1 feet tall this spring. Currently mid-July it is blooming again! It has also grown another 2 feet taller. It is awesome and smells heavenly!! Wish I could afford 50 of them!

    I bought 2 of these this year, and they seemed to be doing good until I mowed one over by mistake. Even so, after a week it has some buds on it so it looks like it will come back. I've only given it 4 stars for now because I have yet to see it flower. I wanted to write a review of the hardiness of the plant. O, and the one I mowed over looked like it was going to give some flowers. UGH!

    I love lilacs and ordered my Josee last year and planted it right away. I expected it to have to be a few feet tall to bloom, but it was less than ten inches tall when it bloomed, it's very first spring! I was amazed. I check it every day for new buds to show up. That smell is what Heaven will smell like.

    I am only giving this a 3 because mine have died but Spring Hill has been wonderful about replacing them. I'm rather disappointed reading these reviews about others having the same problem. I am an avid gardner with a massive garden. I couldn't figure out what was going wrong. They seem to do ok, then wilt and die. I just hope this next one will grow. Most everything else I have bought has done great!

    I don't have personal experience with the Josee lilacs, but wanted to offer some advice for Ang in Michigan. I had problems with my regular lilacs not blooming and couldn't figure out why, until I realized the deer were nibbling the plants before they could bud. Putting some chicken wire or other barrier over the plant until they get tall enough should do the trick. My lilacs finally got tall enough - the buds survived and I now get the blooms. Hope this helps.

    I ordered 2 of these and they were blooming the middle of the first year. I loved the lilacs in the east but our really dry hot weather concerned me, but they did just fine. They have out grown the pots I started them in so it's time to put them in larger containers. I have them in the shade and I can't wait to see what they do in the sun. Great Plant!

    I purchased this variety of lilac for a focal point. My garden has two Josee lilacs and a another larger variety of lilac in white. They are planted in a triangular shape with the two Josee lilacs in front. Each spring it just gets better and better and the scent of lilac is wonderfull. I have a tendency to topiary the Josee lilacs--creating a rounded shape after the first bloom time. I prune them again in late fall. They don't seem to mind and it's a nice more formal touch to my garden.


    Perfect

    I bought 1 plant three years ago. I wanted to see if it would really grow in zone 9 (I live in the desert). The first year it was just a twig. The second it exploded. I grew it in a pot so that I can move it onto the patio when the sun is intense. I didn't think a lilac would grow in the desert, but it grows well. I can smell the flowers through the window as I write this.

    I got 2 of these 2 years ago. I planted them and they grew to about a foot and a half tall. Last summer I moved them when we built a patio. They are now nearly 3 feet tall. They are full of buds, can't wait to see them bloom. Hope they bloom all summer now that they are in more sun.

    I love my Lilac Ive had it for about 10 years. It a very hardy plant it served when my roof was done and the roof dumped the entire roof over it. Every year I found new shoots around the yard. The roots creep under the dart and pop up feet and inches away from the original plant. Come the spring when it blooms the small it so nice I just wish that it bloomed all summer.


    Just Right

    We received our Josee Lilacs in late fall. We planted them in 12 pots and left them on the deck all winter. They lived through temps. down to 10F, and lots of ice and snow. They have somehow grown about 2 since we have received them and they are now covered with leaves and showing signs of developing buds. I believe they will do well in our area. We are waiting to see the actual bloom color before planting them in the ground this fall, we have a friend that has these and hers are each different shade of lavender, one is more blue and one more pink.

    I planted a small new plant last year and it looks good this spring, budding nicely and it doubled in height. I rate at 5 because I believe it will flower this spring, in it's first year! I will re-rate once I can determine if it actually blooms all summer long and if it survives the hot summer.

    I planted three lilacs - two wilted and needed to be replaced. The third one is growing really nice, it is still pretty small but has flower buds on it. Can't wait until it grows!
