Dwarf Standard Lilac makes a great pot plant
The fragrant flower clusters of 'Palibin' form a canopy over the whole bush, therefore a good choice is to plant it in a nice decorative flower pot for the patio. Use a large pot to prevent the tree trunk from falling over. Make sure there are holes in the base to allow for adequate drainage.
Water your Dwarf Standard Lilac regularly, especially when grown in a pot, as it doesn't like dry soil. In fact, water it more often during dry periods. Cover the soil around the tree with a layer of compost and fertilise it early in the spring.
The Dwarf Standard Lilac needs to be pruned
After flowering, prune the branches of the Dwarf Standard Lilac while leaving its young side shoots to bloom, the next spring. Remove suckers growing from the roots.
