Lilacs are such assets to their landscapes—the famed perfumes and luxurious flower clusters make them strong springtime focal points. But not every garden can fit a full–sized lilac bush. That's what makes Miss Kim an excellent cultivar. It grows only 4–9' tall. You can use these fragrant blooms for cut flower arranging, or watch hummingbirds and butterflies flock to them in the garden. In fall, the green foliage turns burgundy. Hungry deer tend not to be interested in lilacs. Miss Kim Lilac ships now, garden–ready in a gallon–sized pot.
