It stays!

We've had it for a decade and until this year it hadn't made it past three feet tall. Finally, we decided that we were going to care for it properly: watering it during dry spells, fertilizing it with Neptune's Harvest, clearing out the competing roots, etc. If after one year of good care it still wasn't thriving, we were going to get rid of it.

Well, this year it's over five feet tall and if it hadn't suffered freeze damage, it would have been covered with flowers. So we're keeping this yellow lilac. May it live a long and happy life!

The moral of the story is: don't neglect your shrubs! You might be missing out on something fabulous!
