Miss Kim Lilac Tree Form
Compact Lilac Artfully Grafted into a Tree Form
Just who was Miss Kim? Rumors abound. Was she the helper to Elwyn Meader who discovered this beautiful lilac in the mountains of Korea during the war? If so, what made her his muse?
We may never know. But we do that this mysteriously lovely lilac is now a nursery standard because of its excellence.
This Miss Kim lilac is a compact bush that has been grafted into tree form. It is eye-popping in containers as a standard topiary under-planted with ivies, annuals or grasses.
It blooms later than most lilacs, meaning that it extends the lilac season much longer for you lilac fans. The dark purple buds open to clusters of intensely fragrant lavender-blue flower spikes. The foliage stays deep green all summer but blushes red in the fall for a full three seasons of interest. Make sure you plant it where it can be admired. This is no “back corner side yard” plant. It is perfect as a specimen in a bed or even right smack in the front of the border.
Even though the back story might be lost in time, it’s not a mystery that you will love this lilac tree, so don’t wait to order yours!
