Can you tell me when lilacs will be blooming in my area? I live just across from Villanova University, and want to time a western friend's visit with lilacs, which she loved as a child. Thank you.

From the zone maps, it looks like late April to early May. Villanova University has an arboretum that can probably give you a more exact date. Sometimes it depends on species since they may have slightly different bloom times.
