Lilac Growth Rate
I am thinking of planting a lilac. I saw a white one in a nursery and was told that they "grow fast." If the plant starts out 3 feet tall, how long will it take, on average, to get 3 feet? 4 feet? It will be in my backyard with full sun almost constantly. I live in Southern California so the weather is pretty much constant, in the 70's and 80's all the time.

On average, most lilac varieties are medium growers, meaning they grow about one to two feet annually.
