A dwarf lilac like Baby Kim offers a lot of versatility in the landscape. Plant it lining a walkway, under windows, as a low hedge, or anywhere you want color and fragrance with minimal care.
Plant only in full sun and well-drained soil; lilacs cannot tolerate soggy, wet conditions.
If you want to prune Baby Kim lilac, do so immediately after it blooms in late spring. Never cut it back in fall, winter, or early spring - doing so will remove the spring flower buds. Pruning is not necessary, particularly for small, tidy varieties like this.
Like nearly all lilacs, Baby Kim lilac actually requires a period of cold weather in order to bloom well. This is why lilacs are not typically suited to warmer climates. However, they are very, very cold tolerant and thrive in climates as cold as USDA zone 3.
The botanical name of lilac, Syringa (suh-RIN-gah), is from the Greek word syrinx, which means tube. This is because the stems of lilac contain a spongy pith which can be remove, leaving a hollow tube that has traditionally been used to create pan-pipes.

|Amelanchier × grandiflora 'Autumn Brilliance'
Amelanchier x grandiflora is a hybrid cross between two species of North American serviceberry, namely, A. arborea (downy serviceberry) and A. laevis (Allegheny serviceberry). It is known in commerce today by several showy cultivars. This is a small, deciduous, usually multi-trunked understory tree or tall shrub which typically matures to 15-20’ tall. Flowers bloom in April followed by edible fruits (3/8" diameter) in June (hence the sometimes-used common name of Juneberry for amelanchiers). Berries resemble blueberries in taste and may be used in jams, jellies and pies. Finely-toothed, oval-lanceolate leaves (to 3" long) emerge with bronze tints in spring, mature to dark green from late spring throughout summer before finally turning brilliant red to orange-red in fall.
