California Lilac

Not too long ago my wife and I purchased a "California Lilac" from a local nursery and planted it in our yard. It was just a little guy.

Today, that little guy has grown into a beautiful scrub and one of our favorites in the yard.  It has many more blooms on it than the normal lilac tree.

To say the least, it is a magnetic for honey and bubble bees. They love it.

What to learn more? Here's some recommended reading (Links) from Amazon:

1) The California Wildlife Habitat Garden: How to Attract Bees, Butterflies, Birds 

2) Trees and Shrubs of California

3) Lilacs: A Gardener's Encyclopedia
