Lilac Shrub Companions?
Greetings fellow gardners
I have a mature lilac shrub in my backyard. It's easily ten feet tall and blooms nicely, but looks rather lonely since it has no companion plants in the nearby vicinity. If you could please send me suggestions for good companion plants that grow well in central ohio (either zone 5b or 5, depending on which map you use), it would be much appreciated.
Some helpful info: 1) i'm a novice gardener, this is barely my second year at gardening; 2) i have a dog who likes to lay nearby because the shrub gives great shade coverage in the middle of the summer; and 3) the shrub is located along my north eastern property line.
Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions
