Lilacs grow in Zone 9???

I recently was looking in "Fragrant Flowers," searching for something that would grow in the hot Florida sun. Imagine my surprise to find lilac listed as growing in Zone 9! I used to live in the Atlanta area, and lilacs definitely would not grow there, so there's no way they could grow in Florida. Is that a typo, or is there a new tropical variety of lilac out there that I have not heard of yet?

While most lilacs won't tolerate the heat of Zone 9, some Chinese lilacs (Syringa chinensis), dwarf Korean lilacs (Syringa patula) and a few common lilacs (Syringa vulgaris) will grow in cooler reaches of Zone 9, especially in the West.
