Channel 6 News invited plant expert John Fech onto our Midday newscast Thursday to answer viewer questions about their lawn & garden.
Before we had a chance to ask a question, Fech did a little show & tell. He told us about a small low-maintenance tree that you might consider for your home.
That tree is a Japanese True Lilac.
View the attached video for that and his answers to the following questions:
