Truly Fragrant Blooms and Surprising Fall Color
Have you ever had the pleasure of smelling a lilac in your garden in the spring? If not, you have missed out on one of the purest gardening rewards ever. The Miss Kim Lilac is one of the most beloved lilacs in the world.
Also known as the Manchurian Lilac, this elegant shrub is often found in the gardens of the rich and famous. Thanks to Nature Hills, you can bring it home to your garden too! The flowers are lavender to ice blue, with that classic sweet lilac fragrance that can be smelled all over the garden. They smother your shrub in late spring, around May.
The abundant blooms finish their season by fading to a very soft lavender-pink. More sun = more flowers, so plant accordingly. Its smaller size makes it perfect as a foundation plant or to border a walkway or patio. Plant it where you can enjoy it.These make excellent cut flowers, too, and Miss Kim provides armloads of blooms to bring indoors. Pruning it right after it flowers and before seeds are formed assures you an abundance of flowers the following year.
In one last hurrah Miss Kim’s thick, green leaves will turn a very attractive burgundy in autumn. It has the best fall color of any Lilac on the market. Please don’t let another year go by without adding this outstanding lilac to your garden. Order yours today!
