Lilac 'Dwarf Korean'


Syringa meyeri 'Palibin' - A dwarf spreading shrub with a uniform habit. New leaves have a purple margin turning dark green with maturity. Spicy fragrant flowers. Grows 1-2' per year. Since lilac root systems are shallow, they can only reach the base of shallow foundations. If you have a deep foundation, there is little risk of damage. Another condition for foundation damage from lilacs is a heavy soil, such as clay, that swells when wet and shrinks dramatically when dry. Use Bone Meal when you first plant. Do not fertilize the first year. Fertilize once a year with a balanced granular fertilizer. Do not plant any deeper than it is in the pot. Do not add any soil or mulch around the base of the stem. Water deeply once a week for about 20-30 minutes whether is rains or not. Plant at least 3-4 feet from any foundation.  

Zone 3. 1.5m W x 1.25m H. Low, compact shape. Violet-purple flowers in May. Insignificant fruit on dark green foliage turning an insignificant fall colour. Full sun. Adaptable soil. 3Gallon.

Attracts all pollinators. Deer resistant.
