The scoop on Lilac Miss Kim

Love lilacs but have no room for a 12 foot shrub? Allow us to introduce Miss Kim. This compact Korean lilac is ideal for a mixed border or for under a bedroom window (leave the window open in late spring to enjoy the scent.) Grown from just 12 seed collected from a craggy mountainside in Korea on Veteran's Day in 1947, this compact lilac has proven to be a great choice for American gardens.
