LITTLE LADY™ LILAC

Breeder
Buy Little Lady™ Lilac online. Imagine the beautifully fragrant flowers of 'Miss Kim' lilac on a more compact, restrained plant. That is exactly what you have with Little Lady™. In late spring, the dark pink buds open to lilac pink, with a heady fragrance that will tickle your nose! The foliage is similar to 'Miss Kim' and is a nice fresh green. The mature size makes this plant perfect for foundation plantings, but it can also be used en masse, or as an informal hedge where you don't need a lot of height. At maturity, it is about half the size of 'Miss Kim'.
