Lilac - Miss Kim

 Fragrant Blooms and Surprising Fall Color

The Miss Kim Lilac is a compact shrub that has the best fall color of any Lilac. It is very popular and thought by many to be the number one Lilac in many parts of United States.

Lavender to ice blue, sweetly fragrant, single flowers are arranged in clusters that will smother your shrub in late spring. The abundant blooms will finish their season by fading to a very soft lavender-pink.

If you have a nice sunny spot in your yard the blossoms are even more plentiful when planted in full sun.

The Miss Kim blooms latest of all Lilac varieties. Its smaller size makes it perfect as a foundation plant or to border a walkway or patio.

In fall the thick, rich green leaves will turn a very attractive burgundy to purple. It has the best fall color of any Lilac.

A lilac with great fall color and wonderful fragrance should be planted somewhere it can be admired three seasons of the year.

The Miss Kim would be a nice addition to any landscape. Plant one near a window or door so you can enjoy its multi season show.

we recently moved to Ar. can lilacs be grown here in Hot Springs? Had beautiful lilacs in Wi. Is my very favorite flower?? <p><strong><font size=1>Answer from Nature Hills:</strong> The Miss Kim lilac will do well in zones 3  7 and I believe Hot Springs Arkansas is in growing zone 7.
Sweet smelling memories Review by Krista
I grew up in Illinois with a Miss Kim in my yard and I have always looked foward to May when it would bloom. But now I live in zone 8 and was wondering if I would be able to grow a lilac like Miss Kim.

<p><strong><font size=1>Answer from Nature Hills:</strong> The Miss Kim grows in Zones 3  7.</p></font><br>
Miss Kim in zone 7 Review by VV
I have a Miss Kim lilac planted on the southeast corner of my house, which is in zone 7 and has terrible red clay soil. We did amend the soil as best we could when we planted, which was about 5 years ago. The lilacs have been beautiful, and the bush is filled with blooms every year!
Miss Kim in Zone 8 Review by Ginger
I fell in love with lilacs when I was in Chicago last year. I planted 3 Miss Kims in my yard last summer. They get full sun in the morning and dappled afternoon shade. They are also sheltered by a wooden fence. They are loaded with blossoms this spring that are just beginning to open. So good.
Miss Kim Lilac Review by Terri
They are a beautiful shrub, but this is the second one I have had to replace, as they keep dying. I am doing everything the Nursery where I bought it is telling me to do, and they last about 3 weeks and start to die. I dont think I am watering it too much, and I am fertilizing it also.
