I have always wanted a lilac bush because the smell is a little piece of heaven. However, since I live in Texas it is too hot for most varieties. I finally found some that would grow here and have nurtured them for about 8 years now. A few years ago they started blooming, but the flowers all smell like moth balls. Is it the variety, or is there something I can do differently to make the blossoms smell like heaven instead of my granny's linen drawer?
Thanks for any suggestions, Tamrasue
