The flower she says smells SO good, resembles a hyacinth I think but it’s a tree? In Cedartown, GA. The other green plant is in Rex, GA

  1. stone Flower Fanatic says:

    lilac (Syringa vulgaris) and box elder (Acer negundo)

    Box elders are a fairly common tree around these parts… lilac… not so much.

    see this article:

    Walter Reeves also has an article about lilacs….

    I tried planting one in my previous garden, in a frost pocket… I didn’t have any luck…
