I would love to trade for an Old Fashioned Lilac (Syringa vulgaris). Preferably at least 2 years old so it will bloom soon.
Not everything on my have list made it thru the winter. Contact me if you see something of interest.

I have a hedge of these growing around the front of my home! Both white and lavender flowers. I can send you some suckers for postage or a trade!

That would be great. I've never seen the white ones so I would prefer the lavender.
I grew up in North Georgia and we sometimes had the lavender one. I remember the awesome fragrance.
I tried one here years ago and it didn't do well, so I thought they wouldn't grow here. For a few years I've been keeping an eye on one in my neighborhood.
It's finally growing good and blooming right now.
Makes me want to try growing them again.
I will be happy to send postage or trade. I'm still waiting to see if some stuff survived winter. Let me know what you might like and I'll check.
