Product Details

The Miss Kim Korean Lilac is a dream!  Gaze at those beautiful blooms and breathe in that delicious, sweet scent.  This divine plant will send you to your happy place with one sniff!

An explosion of heavenly scented purple-blue flowers smother this delightful deciduous shrub in spring. The green foliage is dense and attractive.  A striking burgundy tint appears on the leaves in autumn.  Miss Kim adds phenomenal color, texture, and interest to any landscape.

The Miss Kim Lilac is fairly large at maturity, 5 to 8 feet tall and about 6 feet wide.  This Lilac is great for a unique hedge or even a privacy screen.  Plant one as a lovely focal point in your yard or garden.  Lilacs are perfect for a cottage, cutting, or wildlife garden.  Plant your Miss Kim somewhere where you pass by often so you can enjoy the fragrance of its blooms.

The Miss Kim Korean Lilac requires minimal care.  This lilac enjoys part to full sun and is adaptable to variety of soils as long as they are well-drained. The Miss Kim is drought tolerant once established.  Fertilize with a slow release fertilizer in early spring for best results.  There is no need to prune this lilac, but if you do, right after spring blooms fade is the time recommended.  Lilacs are deer and disease resistant.  

Miss Kim, take me away!  Order this dreamy Lilac today!

How To Care for your new Miss Kim Korean Lilac

The Miss Kim Korean Lilac requires minimal care.  This lilac enjoys part to full sun and is adaptable to variety of soils as long as they are well-drained. The Miss Kim is drought tolerant once established.  Water deeply twice weekly for the first few months.  Once established, water when the ground is dry.  Fertilize with a slow release fertilizer in early spring for best results.  There is no need to prune this lilac, but if you do, right after spring blooms fade is the time recommended.  Lilacs are deer resistant.

Avoid diseases and pests by providing the ideal environment for your plant to thrive.  Miss Kim lilacs are disease resistant.  Lilacs are rarely affected by insects..  However watch out for Scale and Borers.  Scale is an insect seen on the underside of leaves, stems, and branches.  They may look cottony or waxy and move slowly or not at all.  These insects are parasitic so they can be a problem if they become abundant.  They can be treated with neem oil.  Be sure to thoroughly cover the entire plant and apply multiple doses. If you see holes in the stems of your plant you have Borers.  These are generally hard to treat without pruning the plant back as they live inside the plant. However, natural pesticide, Bacillus thuringiensis can be an effective treatment.

 

Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

BEST ANSWER: you are an 8b so right on the line. If you water well it should do ok. I would wait and plant when the weather begins to cool down.
