A Lilac Walk according to Father John Fialla is a collection of flowering trees and shrubs, situated along a meandering path, that due to the selection, intermitantly bloom throughout the growing season. Most walks I design include French Lilacs, Flowering Crab, Nut trees, Syringa microphyla superba, French Lilacs, Common Lilacs, Korean Lilacs, Chinese Lilacs, Japanese tree Lilacs, Cabbage Roses, Gallica Roses, Spinosissima Roses, Father Hugo's Rose, Explorer Roses, Species Roses, Rugosa Roses etc. Underplantings run mostly to wildflowers and flowering herbs. Certainly the most important is the one at Yonder Farms in Colonie. The walk wraps all the way around the lot with buildings, Nursery and parking lot in the center. It includes many of the Antique Roses, Modern Roses, Flowering trees and Lilacs which I continue to propagate from.
