Yes, you have space for a delightfully fragrant lilac! Baby Kim lilac is our smallest lilac to date, but boy, does it pack in a lot of flower power. Enjoy glossy, dark green foliage, an abundance of fragrant purple blooms that don't fade to white, and a useful rounded habit that fits into just about any sunny spot. It brings all the joy of lilacs into a neater, tidier package so you can enjoy this classic flowering shrub no matter how much - or how little - space you have.
Prefers neutral to alkaline soils, but is fairly adaptable. Good drainage is imperative.
Blooms on old and new wood - prune after spring bloom if desired. Doing so will delay rebloom but also encourages it.
Hedges; mixed borders; foundation plantings; specimen.
A light trim after spring bloom neatens the plant's appearance and encourages rebloom, though it does delay it slightly.
