Q.Growing Lilac Tree in Container
We would like to grow a lilac tree in a very large container. This would frame the back area it would be in. We would make the container ourselves as large as we need. We would like it to grow to a good size. Suggestions on how to do this and possible lilac trees would be appreciated.

You want to make the container about 5"-10" wider than the rootball of the plant you buy and at least 2' deep.
You may like a dwarf Korean lilac. They spread nicely, but stay small so they would not outgrow the container too quickly.
