'Baby Kim' is a pint sized version of garden classic 'Miss Kim' lilac! 'Baby Kim' lilac has a more dwarf compact habit, darker purple blooms, and does not fade to white. It's also about half the size, naturally growing as a tidy and appealing little mound. Great fragrance, disease resistance, and outstanding garden performance makes it a great choice for a smaller space.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Lilacs are generally very easy care shrubs. Plant them in full sun in moist, well drained soil. Lilacs do not like wet sites especially in the winter. Pruning should be done after spring bloom. Pruning will keep the shrub dense and well shaped and increase the amount of flowers. This lilac  is mildew resistant.
