Dwarf Korean Lilac Tree

Dwarf Korean Lilac tree is a spring-flowering deciduous tree.  Dwarf Korean Lilac can be found in both a shrub and ornamental tree form. The flowers of this tree are quite fragrant and last for several weeks. Four small petals make up the cone-shaped flower. Lavender and purple flowers form clusters on the tree. These clusters form a pastel purple color when viewed from a distance.

This lilac naturally grows in a globe form and is resistant to powdery mildew.   This tree works well as an accent plant or a focal point of a landscape.   The foliage turns reddish in the fall when cooler temperatures set in. Mature Dwarf Korean Lilac trees will reach seven feet tall. For best results make sure to plant this tree in a full sun area. The more sun the tree received, the stronger the presence of flowers.

Pruning-  Dwarf Korean Lilac trees should be pruned immediately after the plant is done blooming.  Removing old flower clusters will encourage new flowers to emerge.  Pruning at other times of the year will not hurt the plant, but it may reduce the number of flowers for the next season.  Do not remove more than one-third of the plant during a pruning session.  Removing too much of the plant at one time may stress the plant.  Pruning these ornamental trees in globe form is best.
