Hate My Miss Kim Lilac
Several years back, we went to our local nursey and purchased several shrubs, including 2 lilacs. I picked out the 2 I wanted however, they delivered the wrong ones. I didn't know this until the next spring when it bloomed and it was evidently NOT what I had picked.
Turns out, it's Miss Kim and I've been sorely disappointed since. Each year I threaten to have my husband removed them. It's not that they are unhealthy, infact, they are very healthy and bloom nicely. But I just don't like their habit at all. The flowers are not what I grew up thinking a lilac should look like. In otherwords, big huge clusters. These are too wimpy, too droopy and the flowers themselves too elongated. However, I do admit they smell devine and this is why I have not removed them yet.
So, which lilac AM I looking for? Just your typical run of the mill heavy bloomer with great fragrence. Can someone suggest a species which would be good for NJ, zone 6? I want it to get HUGE!
And, I'll have my DH replant the Miss Kim's in the rear of the yard somewhere nooffensive :-)
