Longest Lasting Lilac Blooms
While most lilacs tend to bloom earlier in spring, Miss Kim blooms a bit later, extending the lilac season for a few weeks. As winter approaches, the rich green foliage begins to develop red or burgundy colored accents on the edges of the leaves. In winter, the leaves fall as the tree goes into its rest.
Doesn’t Require Constant Attention and Maintenance
Miss Kim is the lowest maintenance lilac variety. It is quite cold tolerant and can over-winter down to Zone 3. As a general rule for many shrubs and trees, if you live in a cold climate that is also windy, it always a good idea to find a protected location. On the other end of the thermometer, the Miss Kim Lilac Tree is well able to tolerate the heat of Zone 8 or even Zone 9. In some climates, powdery mildew may be a problem for some lilacs, but Miss Kim is generally quite resistant.
