Fragrant, Colorful Lilac

Fragrance That Memories are Made of
The Miss Kim Lilac (also known as Manchurian lilac) is known for it's intoxicating and delightful fragrance. If you've experienced it once, you'll most likely recognize the scent when you come across one of these bushes for the rest of your life. In fact, our customers have told us many times, that after their experience, they "just HAD to have their own." 

Multiple Ways to Enjoy
Show your classy side by planting this shrub in your garden or use it as a low hedge along the driveway or sidewalk. Line multiples for a striking display of color that doubles as a beautiful privacy screen. At one time, these trees were reserved for those in mansions with wealth.  It's easy to see why.  The rich are famous for having exquisite taste. Now, anyone can enjoy this versatile bush. Plant it by your patio and open a nearby window to let its scent flow through the house.  You can also clip them and bring them inside.  It's such a prolific bloomer, so you can have a vase full of flowers in multiple rooms.

Changing Color
You'll get heavily clustered lilacs in lavender-blue around May. Mid to late summer the flowers transition to a pale pink while still emitting its delightful scent through the air.  It's as equally impressive in autumn as the bright green foliage changes to dark purple.  Your bush will stand out among the bright yellows and orange hues of the season, adding depth to your garden or landscape.

Easy to Grow
Some southern states have trouble growing Lilacs, but the Miss Kim Lilac is not a problem.  The compact shrub grows moderately and can reach up to 6 feet tall.  Pruning and trimming to a more manageable height - depending on your use - is simple. When your bushes are delivered, we include special instructions on how to care for this beautiful, fragrant plant that you're bound to love for years.

Sadly it didn't survive
Over several years I have ordered numerous trees and plants from Fast-Growing and it has mainly been a good experience. Unfortunately the Miss Kim Lilac wasn't one of those positive experiences. As a rule if your plant dies Fast-Growing Trees will replace it, an excellent service they do provide! Although in the case of the Miss Kim Lilac we chose not to return the plant so we only have ourselves to blame.

Miss Kim Lilac
I bought 3 lilac plants in late summer. They were very straggly looking, but they held on to the leaves they had until it started getting cold (I live in NC). I'm not overly concerned because the crepe myrtle I bought from you also started shedding its leaves and it has had a great season. I hope that when spring comes that I will see at least more green leaves and even luck out on a flower or two? We'll see!

Planting & Care

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

Miss Kim Lilac Planting Diretions

Known for the fragrant flowers, Miss Kim Lilac (Syringa pubescens ‘Miss Kim’) is a one of the most widely adaptable lilacs growing in USDA growing zones 4-8. These plants can tolerate full sun to partial shade, in warmer climates (zones 7-8) they would prefer to be planted in afternoon shade to help protect them from the hot sun.

Blooming in spring (late April to early June depending on location), they attract hummingbirds and butterflies to their compact lavender blooms. Slowly growing to an overall size of 6-8 feet tall/wide, they make great hedges if planted in groups or an excellent specimen planting for its showy blooms and beautiful burgundy fall color.

Choosing a location: Lilacs can tolerate full sun to partial shade, but prefer 6 hours of sun for the best blooms. In warmer climates, plant your lilacs in afternoon shade so that they are not exposed to the hot afternoon sun. Lilacs prefer rich, moist soil but do not like to be in areas that retain water for a long period of time.

Planting directions:
1) After choosing your area, dig a hole that is twice as wide and just as deep as the container that the plant arrives in.
2) Carefully remove the plant from the container. Lightly tapping the container will help to loosen it if it is difficult to remove.
3) Lightly comb the roots with your fingers to loosen the roots so that the spread out more quickly.
4) Place your plant in the hole so that the top of the soil is even with the surrounding soil level.
5) Back fill with a mixture of native soil and compost. These plants like rich soil so you can use a 50/50 mixture of compost and native soil. Water after every few inches to remove any air pockets. Tamp the soil well when done to eliminate air pockets.
6) Water well when done and cover the area with mulch to protect the roots and help them conserve moisture.

Watering: Lilacs like moist but not wet soil, they will need to be watered regularly while establishing. They’ll need water once or twice a week (sometimes more in extreme heat), allowing the soil to dry 1-2 inches down before watering again.

Pruning: Lilacs do not need much pruning except to remove damaged or crossing branches. If you remove faded or spent flowers immediately, it will increase the amount of flowers the following season.

Fertilization: Fertilize lilacs in early spring before bloom with a well balanced fertilizer to encourage growth and blooms. A 10-10-10 or all purpose shrub fertilizer will be adequate, please read and follow the label instructions.

my grandmother had lilac trees on the prairies of Saskatchewan in the 30s when I was a little girl and i still have such strong memories of that bush. I wanted my great granddaughter to have those memories and be able to grow with the tree. She is one this week and the tree is a one gallon so hopefully the tree will grow with her!

I ordered a lilac bush from this company in March of 2001. It had been going strong, but was uprooted due to major construction work needed to be done on my house and I cried. I loved that bush. I'm glad to be able to order another one. I grew that bush from a twig and it got to be 12 feet tall and beautiful !

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: I live in central Ohio where there are herds of deer. They will eat other lilacs as high as they can reach, but they have never touched my "Miss Kim"
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.
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 fast does this lilac get to mature height?
Janelle M on Oct 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Liliac can grow up to 1-2 foot per year
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.
What is it's Rate of growth ?
Patty on Apr 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have had my Miss Kim Lilacs for two full seasons. They have only grown a few inches total but each year they have added multiple blossoms and the fragrance is really strong. It's only a few inches tall but already sends a nice scent into the house from the bed next to the house. It seems like it should grow faster but it continues to add blossoms and scent each year.
What is the best time of year to plant lilac bushes?
carole on Aug 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I planted in late April, Plant is doing well is about 4' now second season.
Can it be grown in a pot?
Feles M on Nov 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes they can be grown in a pot.
I was told after a year or two that a plant could be separated into two plants. Like a hosta. Is this true?
MamaBeth on Sep 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: does not separate and can only answer for mine...they are the slowest plant i have ever seen...
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!!
Is this evergreen?
DSterling on Jul 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is not an evergreen tree, if that is what you are asking.
Are those french lilacs?
leaky sneeks on Jun 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Miss Kim lilacs bloom slightly later in May than the French lilacs; the flower clusters are also smaller.
