Baby Kim® Dwarf Lilac Growing and Maintenance Tips

Prefers full sun and well-drained soils. lilacs do not tolerate standing water for extending periods. Never cut back in fall or early spring but prune only after blooming is finished in spring. Like nearly all lilacs, Baby Kim lilac actually requires a period of cold weather in order to bloom well. This is why lilacs are not typically suited to warmer climates. However, they are very, very cold tolerant and thrive in climates as cold as USDA zone 3.
