The Miss Kim lilac is a very popular shrub for many reasons. The blooms have one of the most intoxicating scents of all flowers. The Miss Kim lilac is even more fragrant than roses. The compact and upright rounded form makes them perfect for either border plants or for a specimen planting. The Miss Kim lilac will grow to a height of six to seven feet with a mature spread of five to six feet. This makes it small enough to be manageable in nearly every garden.
The Miss Kim lilac, unlike many other lilac shrubs, is very resistant to powdery mildew. Unfortunately, it is not as drought resistant as some of its cousins. When faced with a prolonged period of drought, the Miss Kim lilac will often shed much of its foliage. Thought by many to be the number one lilac in the midwestern United States, the Miss Kim lilac was originally native to Korea.
