Miss Kim Lilac
Miss Kim lilac is one of the most beautiful and fragrant of
all lilac bushes. The light lavender blooms stand out nicely
against the background of the dark, glossy green foliage. As
with all lilacs, the Miss Kim lilac prefers full sun to thrive,
but will also live in areas of partial shade, at the expense
of fewer blooms. The green foliage turns a deep burgundy red
in the autumn months, making the Miss Kim lilac one of the most
beautiful of the lilacs in the fall as well.
Miss Kim lilac is a very popular shrub for many reasons. The
blooms have one of the most intoxicating scents of all flowers.
The Miss Kim lilac is even more fragrant than roses. The compact
and upright rounded form makes them perfect for either border
plants or for a specimen planting. The Miss Kim lilac will
grow to a height of six to seven feet with a mature spread
of five to six feet. This makes it small enough to be manageable
in nearly every garden.
Kim lilac, unlike many other lilac shrubs, is very resistant
to powdery mildew. Unfortunately, it is not as drought resistant
as some of its cousins. When faced with a prolonged period
of drought, the Miss Kim lilac will often shed much of its
foliage. Thought by many to be the number one lilac in the
midwestern United States, the Miss Kim lilac was originally
native to Korea.
Kim lilac bushes are an excellent addition to any home garden
or landscape. They are hardy to zones three through seven.
Miss Kim lilac bushes are able to adapt to a wide range of
soil conditions. Miss Kim lilac bushes, with their compact
form, make excellent foundation plantings. No garden is complete
without a Miss Kim lilac bush.
