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.

cute little things
I bought 2 of these and planted them last fall. Now they are growing slowly, but look quite healthy, and have new leaves. They should be well rooted in by now, so they can survive when it gets hot here in South Carolina.

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 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 !

Alecia H on Sep 20, 2016
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!)

elisha b on Jul 17, 2017
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"
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.
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.
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.
How fast does this lilac get to mature height?
Janelle M on Oct 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not that quickly for this variety- I planted mine two years ago and it's gained maybe 4 inches in height and width.
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.
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.
How often do you water it? Especially in the 100 degree heat of Idaho. The instructions say 2-3 times a week until established but not after that.
