Planting Zones

Hardiness Zone: 3-8

How To Plant Tiny Dancer™ Lilac

Easy to grow in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil. Tolerates light shade, but best bloom is in full sun. Do not plant in full shade or in soggy soils. Prefers moist, fertile, organically rich, slightly acidic to slightly alkaline soils with good drainage. Do not crowd with other plants, air circulation helps keep the foliage looking good.

How To Water

You should water your Tiny Dancer™ Lilac after planting. Water again when the top inch of soil becomes dry usually once or twice per week.

How To Fertilize

Feed your Tiny Dancer™ in early spring before new arrives with our Elements Starter Plant Food.

How To Prune

Prune when needed on this dwarf version immediately after flowering. Prune spent flower heads off in late spring will improve the health of the plant by preventing plant energy from being used in developing seed heads. Annually pruning out suckers from the base will help keep your lilac tidy and keep it from spreading but this is optional.
