    Description:

    A beautiful and popular shrub with numerous attributes; striking spikes of fragrant lilac-pink flowers in late spring, small rounded foliage and a uniform compact shape; neat and tidy, an extremely versatile garden shrub; full sun and well-drained soil

    Ornamental Features

    Dwarf Korean Lilac is smothered in stunning panicles of fragrant lilac purple flowers at the ends of the branches in late spring, which emerge from distinctive violet flower buds. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has dark green foliage which emerges burgundy in spring. The small pointy leaves do not develop any appreciable fall colour. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

    Landscape Attributes

    Dwarf Korean Lilac is a dense multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

    This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard. It has no significant negative characteristics.

    Dwarf Korean Lilac is recommended for the following landscape applications;

    • Accent
    • Mass Planting
    • Hedges/Screening
    • General Garden Use

    Planting & Growing

    Dwarf Korean Lilac will grow to be about 4 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

    This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under average home landscape conditions. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
