Lilac Bushes


hamayamike added on May 17, 2017 | Answered

I have two lilac bushes. This year one had six clumps of blossoms, the other had none. Now, two weeks later, after the purple flowers have dried up and are gone, I have a whole bunch of small white clumps at the ends of the branches. What is this? I do not recall seeing this before.

It looks like you may have some growth from a root stock.
Lilacs sold today are often on grafted stock.

You should prune away any growth at the base of the plant to prevent root stock take over.
