Location: Maynard, MA; in my yard
Lilac falls somewhere between a bush and a tree. I was surprised to find they are not native to the Americas but hail from the rather specific Balkan Peninsula. Lilac has naturalized in this area and can be found existing happily on its own, though we did plant this one. They smell great in the spring.
