What is Dwarf Korean Lilac Shrub

If you love lilacs but want a longer blooming season, check out our Dwarf Korean Lilac. For starters, it blooms twice each year…once in mid-May and again from July until the first frost. That means months of vibrant color for you.

Even better? Its signature fragrance described as a jasmine-like scent that’s refreshing and sweet. So, this Lilac is perfect for planting near high-traffic areas, like patios, pools and beyond. But its dwarf silhouette is right at home anywhere in your landscape, whether it’s planted next to your porch or graces your garden.

Aside from its long blooming period and symphony of color and fragrance, your Lilac is better because of its strong start. With your Dwarf Korean, you get a healthier root system and more developed branching from day one. That’s because we’ve planted and meticulously grown our Lilacs to adapt and acclimate well to your homescape.

Now, you reap the rewards of gorgeous growth, vivid color, and carefree upkeep. Our Dwarf Korean is effortlessly elegant and fits right into any space.

How to Grow and Care for Dwarf Korean Lilac Shrub

Dwarf Korean Lilac Shrub (Syringa Meyeri ‘Palibin’) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 3-7 outdoors


First, find an area with full sun and well-drained soil. Any area that receives about 6 to 8 hours of sunlight should suffice. Once you’ve selected a location, dig a hole that’s around twice the size of your tree’s root ball. Then, place the tree, tamp down the soil and water to settle the roots.


The Lilac is fairly drought tolerant once established, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule before then. We recommend watering about once weekly. If you’re not sure when to water, check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water.


Only fertilize your Lilac after it starts blooming, preferably with a well-balanced fertilizer once or twice yearly.


Lightly prune your Lilac after it starts blooming for sizing and shaping purposes. To encourage a stronger root system, you may pick off the faded blooms – this allows your tree to focus on establishing its roots.
