Baby Kim lilac has a more dwarf compact habit, darker purple blooms, and does not fade to white. It’s also about half the size, naturally growing as a tidy and appealing little mound. Great fragrance, disease resistance, and landscape performance.

Light: Needs a minimum of six hours of sun exposure per day to thrive. Any less and it will have poor bloom count and is more prone to foliar problems.

Soil: Grows well in average soil and even enjoys alkaline leaning pH. Soil type must be well draining.

Water: Average water needs.

Fertilizing: You can apply a granulated fertilizer formulated for flowering shrubs in the springtime when the soil is workable. If you notice your plant starting to produce fewer blooms than normal, you can apply fertilizer again in the early summer.

Pruning: You can snip spent flowers off after the spring bloom to tidy up the plant.
