I would like to grow a purple lilac tree (not the bush) from seed. I am looking for a reliable place to buy the seeds from. do you have any idea where I could do this? its very important that it is the tree and not the bush. I am having trouble determining the scientific name of the tree vs the bush in my google searches.
You won’t be finding any seed for a purple lilac tree since it is a grafted plant. In other words, it is a regular lilac bush grafted to a long “trunk” to elevate it and give it a tree-like appearance. There a lilac that is a tree, the Japanese Tree Lilac but the flowers are white.
