I just visited Victoria British Columbia, and found this beautiful tree/shrub, and found out they are called California Lilacs.  Normal lilac bushes are native to my city and we are known as the Lilac City.

I have a few lilac bushes and would like to get some of the California Lilacs, but need to know if they will survive in my area which is zone 5.

Thanks Cheryl

It must survive the winters as they were talking about snow damage.....but the link in British Columbia says that they are invasive species.
