What do I need?

  • Pruning shears
  • Compost
A dwarf lilac needs water, especially if it is in a pot. The plant loves the soil around it to be covered with compost in the spring.
You can prune away the branches of your dwarf lilac after it blooms. Trim away all the branches that have bloomed down to the new growth. You can also prune off runaway growth from the roots.


What do I need?

  • A trowel
  • Garden peat and compost
  • Water

Water first
First, place the dwarf lilac in a bucket of lukewarm water. Add some garden peat and compost to a large pot, dig a hole and plant it. First place the plant in shade, and move it to an area in the sun for an hour longer each day, so that it can adapt.

In the garden
Dwarf lilacs love sun or half shade and nutrient-rich soil. Dig a planting hole and till the soil a bit, so that the roots can take hold quickly. Set the root ball at the proper height, so that the top is just below ground level. Fill the hole up with soil, garden peat and compost, and press firmly. Water the plant right away.


This very popular lilac bush will, after initially flowering in June, flower again later in the summer, then again in autumn. A 'common' lilac can grow quite large but Syringa pubescens subsp. microphylla will only reach about 1.5 m. The foliage is also slightly smaller than the more known lilacs. We offer this compact growing dwarf lilac as a shrub. The beautiful flower clusters of the Syringa pubescens subsp. microphylla spread the most delightful fragrance. Lilacs grow wild all over Southern Europe and is actually a cousin to the olive tree.
