Reviewed By: Marcia Gensler (Columbia City, Indiana)
I am on the 2nd season and finally starting to see some leafy growth. I have another i planted in a different location that seems to be showing some life. Dont know how long before it takes on that lilac appearance or blooms.

Primrose Lilac
Reviewed By: Carol Ann (Mansfield, Ohio)
I purchased (3) last year. I planted (1) in P-shade and two in full sun. The (1) in P-shade is doing wonderful...while the other (2) are not showing any signs of growth. I am dissapointed. I am trying desperately to find more mature bushes.

primrose lilacs
Reviewed By: Chuck Fox (Lancaster, OH)
We ordered a couple of primrose lilacs (yellow) this spring and they arrived in excellent condition with lush green foliage. They have continued to impress and grow more quickly than I have expected, still keeping lush foliage (better than any other lilacs that we have). Friends have commented on how well they are growing from visit to visit. They are planted in a southern exposure. Impressive plants !
