1 review for Dwarf Korean Lilac – 2 Gallon Container

  1. Elizabeth Terrell (verified owner)

    I already had one in my yard & it is my favorite plant because it’s easy to grow, has wonderful foliage & flowers, and (of course) has that incredible lilac scent; being a dwarf, you can even lean over the blooms in mass to enjoy the fragrance. I ordered four from Grimm’s Gardens and they were the best packaged plants I have ever ordered from anywhere and the plants themselves were larger and healthier looking than any lilacs I have seen, even at the local nurseries where they didn’t have to endure handling and shipping. I’m very very impressed so now I have to check out what they offer on line.
