Interesting Notes about Dwarf Korean Lilac:

Lilacs are primarily popular for their fragrance and flowers, seen by some as the official sign of spring. The flowers are beautiful in bouquets and hummingbirds and butterflies enjoy them too. The lilac bush is a tough plant because they will survive on neglect, and if grown in a fertile, well-drained soil, pruned properly and given good air circulation will provide lasting beauty in the landscape.
