I have another flower bush starting to grow and they kind of look like lilacs, but the leaves are totally different.
Any ideas?




If the flowers are like lilac it is probably a type of lilac. When you want to know what family a plant belongs to it's the flowers that will determine it. Different species of plants in the same family can have different leaf shapes but their flowers always have the same form.

That is definitely a lilac. If it is scented then that clinches it, but there are ones with no scent too!
