Lilacs are common and reliable shrubs of our climate. So it is clear that we will not offer you something that can be seen at every corner, but speciality plants that look a bit different and bring something extraordinary to your beautiful garden.

This variety was first introduced in the UK in 1954. The seeds came from Korea hence its name: Miss Kim, Kim being the most common name in Korea. The scented flowers are pure lavender-lilac colour, opening from darker purplish buds. They are formed in upright panicles that are not as clustered as on common lilac. The individual flowers are longer and tubular and look somewhat relaxed inside the panicle, not as crowded.

Lance-shaped leaves are 5-11 cm long, mid green, deciduous. This lilac is mound-forming, small in growth and very compact. Thanks to its reduced size it is ideal for small gardens. Every year from May to June it offers a rich and reliable show of lilac flowers. Pruning is not recommended. If you need to trim or re-juvenate the plant do so immediately after flowering.

Lilacs can be grown in many soil types. For best result use reasonably fertile, moist but well-drained soil, preferably neutral or alkaline. Full sun for profuse flowering. Fully hardy to -34°C (USDA zone 4).
