Syringa pubescens subsp. patula ‘Miss Kim’ is an awesome Lilac for any yard. This amazing plant grows tight and compact, unlike traditional lilacs. Yet it is every bit as nice in so many ways.
Compact growing habit and dwarf in size. Most grow to a height and width of 6 feet or 8 feet maximum.
The blooms come later in the season, beautiful dark lavender to purple and as fragrant and fragrant can be.
Miss Kim Lilac is hardy in zones 4 through 8, loves full sun but does just as well in partial shade. Unlike other Lilacs Miss Kim is very resistant to the dreaded powdery mildew that affects the french hybrid lilacs.
An added bonus is foliage that turns a burgundy color in the fall.
