Syringa meyeri 'Palibin'

Dwarf Korean Lilac

Syringa meyeri ‘Palibin’ is a compact, low-spreading cultivar of Korean Lilac which typically grows 4-5’ tall with a spread of 5-7’. Pale lilac, sweetly-fragrant single flowers arranged in dense, terminal clusters cover this shrub with a profuse bloom in late April to early May (St. Louis area). Dark green leaves are smaller than the species and extremely resistant to powdery mildew. Effective as a specimen or massed. Good screen or informal hedge for property lines. Korean lilacs are generally more attractive than many other species of lilacs in summer due to their mildew-free foliage.

Dwarf Korean Lilac Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates light shade, but best bloom is in full sun. Prefers organically rich, moist soils. Needs good air circulation. Good tolerance for urban conditions. Prompt removal of faded flower panicles before seed set will increase the bloom in the following year. Prune as needed immediately after flowering.
