Product Overview

  • Lavender Flowers in Late Spring
  • Attracts Butterflies and Hummingbirds
  • Easy to Grow in Average Soil and a Sunny Site
Compact, dense, deciduous shrub with thick, rich green leaves, which turn purple in fall. Pleasing, icy blue, sweetly fragrant, flower panicles completely smother the plant in late spring, the latest of all lilac species. Plant in full sun in most average soils. Use as a foundation plant, in the shrub border, as a natural screen, or as a hedge. No maintenance necessary, but if pruning is desired, do so only in summer immediately after flowers fade. Any other time will chop off flower buds for the next year. We're sorry, but due to state regulations, this plant cannot be shipped to Wisconsin.
  • Covered with icy blue flowers in spring
  • Late blooming lilac with outstandingly fragrant blooms
  • Very adaptable shrub that makes a wonderful flowering hedge
  • Low maintenance with no special pruning needed
  • 2 gal. ships in pot unless state or federal regulations require otherwise
  • We're sorry, but due to state regulations, this plant cannot be shipped to Wisconsin
  • This plant ships as a bare root plant with no soil and no pot when shipped to Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington
  • When shipped as a bare root plant, the Shake&Shipsystem will be used to remove soil from the roots, thus increasing the root tip surface area, which in turn, greatly enhances the ability of the plant to rapidly establish itself in the new environment
  • Performs best in plant growing zones 3 to 7, when grown in other Zones, special care requirements will be required
  • To accommodate mature size or when planting in groups, space 5 ft. away from other plants or structures
  • May ship in a dormant state, with bare branches and no leaves, especially in early spring when plant has been pruned back to promote lateral branching

Questions & Answers

Is their a lilac that blooms allyear long?

Asked by: Car
Hello, Car. Unfortunately, there is not a Lilac that blooms all year long. The 'Miss Kim here prolifically blooms only in spring. There is a variety called 'Bloomerang that blooms in spring and again in Fall if climate conditions are right.

does this lilac bloom twice a year, miss kim

I bought it with the label reading spring-summer bloomer, and was told by another gardener that it wasn't true they bloom once a year, wondered if anyone is familiar with this lilac
Asked by: springtime
Thank you for your question. The Miss Kim lilac blooms just once each year for a few weeks in early summer. The tag that reads "spring-summer bloomer" indicates that the plant flowers in late spring to early summer.

Customer Reviews

2 gal. Miss Kim Lilac Shrub is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hardy Lilac I purchased this lilac last summer and today I noticed it has broken bud and has new leaves. The winter had it looking so bad I thought it had died. I discovered had virtually no die back from the winter even though the temp dipped to 32 degrees F where I live in California, and last summer reached triple digits. The bush even bloomed a bit for me last fall. I cant wait to see the blooms this year!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Purchased at the store, June 2013...plant did not do anything . Looks like it was never healthy.Thought maybe it had to wait for new growing season, never developed for leaves or buds. Must have been dead when I purchased it. No buds or leaves starting this year either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good ... We're talking about plants here, and they've only been in the ground for about three weeks -- but they looked fine when they arrived, and they're still alive and seem to be thriving -- which is VERY encouraging, since they have to cope with a difficult growing environment: an insufficiently sunny New York City backyard.
