Barbara Pintozzi added this to Great Lakes Gardener's May Checklist
Lilacs (Syringa vulgaris, zones 3 to 7) are tough, long-lived fragrant spring standards. Although not native, they are associated with the Midwest because of the 19th-century pioneer practice of planting lilacs near outhouses. The strong scent of lilacs is nostalgic for many people, making them very popular; there is even an annual Lilac Festival in Lombard, Illinois. They are perfect for incorporating into heritage and cottage gardens.Syringa vulgaris may be prone to powdery mildew. Dwarf Korean lilacs (Syringa meyeri, zones 3 to 7) are not prone to powdery mildew and bloom slightly later than common lilacs.

Finally, if all else fails, I can recommend some petty lilac thievery — which, if conducted properly, may not even be a crime. Take a drive in the country and eventually you'll come across an abandoned farm, maybe with a ruins of a barn with only the stone foundation and a beautiful stand of lilacs to mark its former existence. Hippity-hop out of your car and get to work.
