Palibin Pink Korean Lilac (Syringa meyeri 'Palibin') is short in stature, but it doesn't fall short in delivering fragrance. It's a compact lilac (reaching only 4 to 6 feet tall) '– ideal for smaller gardens '– that blooms even more profusely than larger, old-fashioned lilacs. You'll want to plant this garden charmer where you can enjoy its exhilarating scent, whether it's near your favorite chair or lining the walkway to your door. And if you're a fan of pink flowers, you're in for a real treat when Palibin Pink Korean Lilac is in full bloom!
Bright Blossoms and Healthy Foliage
Many lilac shrubs become eyesores after the flowers fade because of their disease-affected foliage, but not so with Palibin Pink Korean Lilac. Its superior qualities include:
• Disease resistance. Lilacs are notoriously susceptible to a fungal disease called powdery mildew, which leaves a white coating on the leaves and stems. Palibin Pink Korean Lilac is highly resistant to this disease, so the shrub's foliage remains green and full after the flowers fade.
• Abundant flowers. Late spring to early summer is when Palibin Pink Korean Lilac really puts on a show. Its nostalgic fragrance is certainly a primary feature, but it's the sheer number of flower clusters that make this lilac stand apart from others. Each shrub is packed to floriferous perfection!
• Hummingbird- and butterfly- appeal. Not only will you be irresistibly drawn to Palibin Pink Korean Lilac's flowers, but the purplish-pink blooms are also a garden magnet for hummingbirds and butterflies.
Cottage-Garden Elegance with Ease
Palibin Pink Korean Lilac's merits rank high on the landscape-design list. It's winter-hardy to cold climates across USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 3, but it also performs in the warm climates of Zone 7. As a quintessential cottage-garden plant, Palibin Pink Korean Lilac looks stunning in front of a white picket fence.
Its beauty as a focal point will certainly command attention, but it is truly breathtaking planted en masse in a group or cluster planting. Palibin Pink Korean Lilac is a must-have plant for your sunny perennial border garden where you want a succession of bloom from well-chosen perennials that have different bloom times. All you have to provide: a sunny spot (some afternoon shade is okay), deep watering during the first growing season, an application of slow-release fertilizer in early spring, and only a little light pruning to remove the spent blossoms immediately after flowering. That's it '– minimal care for this garden gem!
