Baby Kim Lilac

Brand new to the Proven Winner’s line-up, Baby Kim (Syringa x), is sure to impress. Blooming in early spring, this dwarf lilac may be small, but it still packs a powerful, and fragrant punch. Growing to 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide, this lilac allows anyone, in any space, to enjoy the beloved smell of lilacs. This hardy cultivar can be grown in zones 3-8 and will bloom if it is planted in a sunny location. To bloom, Lilacs need a period of cold to set the blooms, making it ideal for our zone. The Baby Kim has such a fantastic growth habit that it should not need to be pruned. However, in the event that pruning is needed, remember that new buds are formed on old wood and therefore any pruning should be done after blooms have been spent for the season but before new buds have had a chance to appear. Although considered fairly low maintenance, these shrubs don’t tolerate having “wet feet” and should be planted in well-draining soil.
