Product Details

Every garden has room for a Lilac thanks to compact, tidy Syringa Baby Kim®, a hardy, dwarf shrub that offers up clusters of fragrant purple flowers in early spring. These low-maintenance plants create a mound of glossy green foliage that’s resistant to deer and disease. Plants may rebloom if deadheaded following the first flush. A Proven Winners®/Color Choice® variety. 'SMNSDTP' PP 32,969

Lilacs are among the best-known, classic spring-flowering shrubs. For generations of reliable bloom and sweet fragrance, generally before Memorial Day, these sturdy shrubs are in a class by themselves. Most Lilacs prefer full sun and neutral to slightly alkaline soil.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Beautiful, surprisingly hardy plant!

I've had Baby Kim for two years now and moved it into a larger container not long after I got it. The first year the plant grew and leafed out nicely but didn't develop flowers. I actually thought it was dead last fall (2022) and left it out in its pot all winter during the coldest weather we've had in my USDA zone 6 area in the 20 years we've been here (temp dropped to minus 20 or thereabouts for several consecutive days). Imagine my surprise and delight this spring when I began to see leaf buds and then several clusters of purple flower buds on Baby Kim. I began taking care of the plant again and am pleased to report that it's doing very well. The flowers are still blooming and they're beautiful and smell heavenly--just like a lilac should. Am planning to transplant it to a larger pot and will definitely buy at least one more Baby Kim to take with me and plant in the landscape when we move a few hours away later this year.

Latin Name Pronunciation: sir-ing'guh  

Plant Syringa in full sun (S. laciniata varieties are the exception and will perform well in partial shade). Immature lilacs produce flowers with lighter coloration; it may take 4–6 years for their true color to show.

All Lilacs require well-drained soil with pH close to neutral. Add lime if your soil is extremely acid. Fertilize once, in early spring, with a light application of an organic seaweed extract, fish emulsion, or slow-release fertilizer. Prune as necessary after bloom in spring.

S. vulgaris varieties are prone to powdery mildew, which generally appears in late summer. Mildew disfigures the leaves to varying degrees, but seems to have little effect on the vigor of the plant.
