    Description:

    A compact garden accent shrub featuring showy panicles of light lilac-pink flowers in spring and crinkled foliage, impressive fall color for a lilac; upright and dense, an ideal garden shrub alone or in groupings, fragrance is overwhelmingly spicy

    Ornamental Features

    Miss Kim Lilac is covered in stunning panicles of fragrant lavender flowers rising above the foliage in late spring. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The pointy leaves turn an outstanding deep purple in the fall. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

    Landscape Attributes

    Miss Kim Lilac is a dense multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage.

    This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard. It has no significant negative characteristics.

    Miss Kim Lilac is recommended for the following landscape applications;

    • Accent
    • Mass Planting
    • Hedges/Screening
    • General Garden Use

    Planting & Growing

    Miss Kim Lilac will grow to be about 6 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 6 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

    This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under average home landscape conditions. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
