#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant this shrub in well-drained soil and somewhere it can soak up the sun all day long, but White Dwarf also tolerates afternoon shade and partial sun in warmer climates. As long as the Dwarf Lilac stays watered during the first season, it'll be just fine receiving minimal watering in the future.

Easy-care Lilacs are not particular on soil type, any rich well-drained soil is best, preferring slightly alkaline soils. Enrich with compost and add organic, slow-release blooming shrub fertilizer in spring and avoid high-nitrogen or lawn fertilizers entirely. Be sure the Lilac does not sit in water, nor dry out for too long to protect your investment, but this Lilac is drought tolerant once established!

A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill. Water well through the crucial establishment period and during extended drought. Be sure to not cluster Lilac too tightly among other large trees or shrubs.

If you live with deer in your area, apply repellent spray on planting day. Deer are hungry and curious, and you want to train them to leave your plants alone. Reapply according to the label.

Gorgeous White Dwarf Lilacs rarely need much in the way of pruning, don't miss a single bloom with these easy Pruning steps for the best flowering. It is important not to prune Lilacs until after they have finished blooming, because if you wait too long and you may remove next year's flowers! Every few years, Lilac benefits from a renewal pruning too!
