Dwarf Korean Lilac
Syringa meyeri ‘Palabin’
4-6 feet high x 4-6 feet wide
Compact mounded shape
Full Sun to Part Sun
This lilac was discovered by Frank N. Meyerin near Beijing, China in 1909 and has never been observed in the wild, leading to the belief that it is a hybrid. Growth habit is full and evenly shaped from a young age with small, wavy, dark green leaves. Fragrant lavender flower clusters bloom in May (not early May) from establishment and annually onward. This lilac is not as xeric as some others, but it is such a handy size and blooms well with less than full sun that we recommend it heartily.
