Miss Kim Lilac
Miss Kim Lilac was shipped promptly, packed perfectly and is doing well. I purchased her late in the season, so I've not enjoyed any blooms yet, since she blooms in the Spring. That being said, she is doing well and shows significant new growth. I look forward to wonderful sniffing next Spring!

: Miss Kim Lilac
The plant is growing but still very small. I transplanted it into a bigger container until it is big enough to plant in ground and out of danger of getting run over by the lawn mower. I am looking forward to see this plant come into full bloom. The plant arrived in very good health and is doing well.

Love Miss Kim
10 years ago we planted 4 of the Miss Kim Lilacs within our courtyard. Unfortunately 2 have now died but we plan to replace them this spring. I live in MA and we had much snow in 2015, not so much in 2016 but where they are planted we get a lot of wind. The other two look healthy enough, for now, at least. Am wondering if the wind did them in. Maybe they don't have a long life span, I just don't know.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Miss Kim Lilac



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Miss Kim Lilac.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Miss Kim Lilac gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Miss Kim Lilac again after the transplant is complete.

I chose this for a foundation plant--it is more compact than other lilac varieties (be sure if you prune you do it right after it blooms since it blooms on last year's old wood!)

DO YOU TRIM IT ?
MARY M on Mar 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Miss Kim does not need the pruning that regular French Lilacs do, but you can prune it if you want to keep it smaller than its natural 6-8 feet. Most people do not prune on a regular basis, since it has a fairly compact habit.
Is this plant "deer resistant"?
Claire F on Mar 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Lilacs are considered more deer resistant than most plants, but we all know that a hungry deer will eat most anything.
does this return ? do humming birds like this ?
MARY M on Mar 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this plant returns in the areas where it is hardy - zones 4-8, which includes most of the continental U.S. And hummingbirds love the nectar! Miss Kim blooms late spring and early summer, which is great timing for hummingbirds migrating up for the summer.
How far apart should they be planted to make a hedge?
Michelle S on Apr 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would plant them 3-4 feet apart.
How fast does this lilac get to mature height?
Janelle M on Oct 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Planted mine in April 2015 and I am not sure they are going anywhere yet. Area: north GA foothills.
When to plant?
leann n on Sep 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I planted in late spring and my lilac has been doing great (in Boise, Idaho, which is a high plains desert). I think early to late spring is ideal. I imagine early fall (after the summer heat is finished) is also a great time to plant.
How long does sit bloom?
Carol R on May 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It seemed the blooming on mine was short lived (maybe a week), I had just planted mine about 2-3 weeks prior to blooming so that may have had an impact on duration. Higher hopes for next year, its growing great right now!!
how large is the plant when it arrives?
mary c on Apr 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The gallon sizes are listed because we cannot guarantee what height they will be. The heights can vary from 6-12 inches and up.
Can it be grown in a pot?
Feles M on Nov 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes they can be grown in a pot.
