Why you should consider purchasing a cloned lilac this month: Data on cloned lilacs have been collected for decades. Some of these plants have died. We need to replenish the pool! If you'd like to purchase a cloned lilac to monitor, you can buy cloned lilac from our friends at Jung's Nursery today (2 for $20).
Steve Potter shares why he observes
"My wife and I are cooperative observers for the national weather service and we record weather data everyday, so it seemed like a natural fit to include phenological observations."
