Lilacs generally bloom in late spring and early summer, but some varieties will bloom mid-summer and the fall. I have an ever-blooming lilac, and it blooms all summer. If you see one of these at a nursery, grab it! It will be gone the next time you visit the nursery. Ever-blooming lilacs have become immensely popular for their scent and color in the garden throughout the summer.
