Dan's Garden: Japanese Tree Lilacs

Posted: Updated:

Dan Cashman loves some trees so much, he just can't stop talking about them. He tells us more about the Japanese Lilac he brought up last week.

"Japanese tree lilacs are so incredible.

I planted this one 31 years ago, when my daughter Katie was born.

It's an amazing tree. They get about 25 to 26 feet high. They have the big white flowers. This has been blooming since June 1st and it's still blooming.

There are also smaller versions, like a dwarf version called ivory silk. They're narrower and more compact. They only get to be 22 feet high.

At my neighbors house, their roses are incredible. Canadian roses are easy to take care of and bloom and bloom. It's fun to see all the color. We'll have more tips for next week. Until then, good gardening."
