My neighbor has a row of miniature lilac. The flowers are much small not as pretty. But they didn't want the giant size standard lilacs and the miniature are more manageable as a hedge, they trim the a once per year. They do seem to be just as hardy... In Minnesota.

My neighbor has a Japanese lilac. Super fragrant white flowers all over the tree. It is great for shade, too

Chinese lilac (S. chinensis) – This is one of the best varieties to use as a summer screen or hedge. It grows quickly to reach a height of 8 to 12 feet. Chinese lilac is a cross between common lilacs and Persian lilacs. It is sometimes called Rouen lilac.

Will it flower without a winter chill? There's one type of lilac which is supposed to do well in warmer climates.
