Lilacs available after sale

Thank you to everyone who supported our sale! It was wildly successful - with over 400 lilacs sold. We have just a few lilacs remaining which can still be purchased online and pickup by appointment. When placing your order provide your phone number to finalize date and time.

Location for pickup is on the north side of Lilacia Park in Lombard next to the train tracks (see map) by the Park District administration building at 227 W. Parkside.

Health of your plant

Lilacs have been carefully tended to throughout the summer months. After they were potted they were stored outdoors in park district facilities.

At the time of pickup you may find that your lilac has a white dusting on its leaves. This is called powdery mildew and can appear on lilacs toward the end of the summer. While stored outdoors, the lilacs were in a confined space with less than idea air circulation resulting in conditions that can create powdery mildew.

Planted in their new home in a sunny area with adequate airflow, next spring new leaves should show no sign of the condition. Here is an article from the University of Illinois Extension with more information: http://hyg.ipm.illinois.edu/article.php?id=1092
