Miss Kim Lilac

Great for Smaller Spaces

A favorite choice for smaller spaces. Growing just 4-9 ft. tall with a 5-7 ft. spread, Miss Kim Lilac blooms in the springtime, perfuming the air with a sweet fragrance. The lavender to blue flower clusters are stunning in the garden and cut-flower arrangements. Its dark green leaves turn burgundy in the fall. Grows best when planted in full sun. Attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. Deer tend to avoid. Available in a gallon pot and shipping now. Potted. Zones 3-8.
