Need lilac help - zone issues!
I love lilacs, but have never grown them. I am very new to gardening and am taking the plunge, but I screwed up and ordered some apparently not appropriate for my zone. I'm in 8b and they're supposedly only for up to zone 7. The online company I bought from has horrible customer service (should have done my research on that too!) and doesn't even sound like they'll take them back (although I haven't put up much of a fight, yet!). What I bought was called "Lilac Fragrant Mix". I don't even have the info on them anymore because they disappeared from the website. So, here's my question. With some TLC, can I grow this in my zone? (and what kind of TLC are we talking?) or should I try to get the company to take them back?
