‘Miss Kim’ Lilac


‘Miss Kim’ Lilac

Syringa patula 8x8' NH Ag Exp Stn, 1954.

Heavily scented extremely prolific small single ice-blue lavender blooms appear after the vulgaris types have gone by. Red-purple buds.

Descended from one of the twelve seeds that plant-breeder Elwyn Meader collected on a hike in 1947 while stationed in Korea as an Army horticulturist. Very compact rounded form.

A number of years ago, a customer sent us a photo of her “Fedco” Miss Kim and wrote, “If you look closely at the photo you can see a few of the many, many butterflies that would cover these lilacs, almost like the blooms themselves.” Z3. (1-3' bare-root plants)

Additional Information


Plant in a sunny (at least 6 hours of sunlight each day) well-drained location in moderately rich soil; sandy gravelly loam is perfect. Pink, lavender and blue lilacs color up best in soil with a neutral pH. Spacing depends on your plan; lilacs perform well as hedges as well as specimens.
