Question Miniature lilac bushes

When we lived in the city, my neighbour grew a couple of miniature lilac bushes. They don't grow as tall as the lilac bush does and the fragrance is incredible. Has anyone grown any of these? They are actually called Korean lilacs and are stunning.

Yes, the fragrance is wonderful, so intense!! We have 2 of these in our yard. They don't last at all if you pick them to put them in a vase, or at least I have never had any luck...but the smell in WONDERFUL!! Mine also bloom a bit later than my commom liliacs....

I would love a lilac bush of any kind but just can't figure out where to put it. I may have to consider this smaller variety, wouldn't be so hard to find a place for that one.........

These sound lovely. They'd go very well next to my Hydrangia bushes. Nice.
