Here's my feeling about the one flower. For 4 years I had no flowers. Then this year, I did nothing different, but got a beautiful flower. It was something in nature that did this. The only thing that was different this year is that we had a lot more rain in the spring than we usually do and a much colder winter. So to me, that is what caused the flower to bloom, without any fertilizer or other treatment from me.
Addie, we have 2 lilac bushes and I wish they wouldn't bloom. I am highly allergic to them and can't sit on the back porch when they're blooming.
