Syringa patula 'Miss Kim'
Miss Kim Lilac

Miss Kim Lilac has quickly soared in popularity to become the number one Lilac in the Midwestern United States. Compact and upright-rounded in form, it slowly grows to five feet tall and wide. Like most Lilacs, it has an abundance of fragrant blossoms in spring, especially when sited in full sun (as shown). 'Miss Kim' has the best fall color of any Lilac and is resistant to powdery mildew, but suffers under prolonged drought conditions, when it may drop many of its leaves.
