Meyer Lilac ‘Palibin’ | Plant Profile

Meyer Lilac ‘Palibin’ (Syringa meyeri) are medium sized hedges that grow slightly wider than tall. Fragrant pink or purple flowers populate the shrub in clusters. Hummingbirds, bees, and other pollinators are often attracted to the sweet blooms. The small dark green leaves complement the flowers well, but do not produce notable fall color.

‘Palibin’ prefers acidic, dry to medium moisture, well drained soils in full sun.

‘Palibin’ are attractive when planted singularly as a small focal point or when grouped together. They can serve as showy shrub borders or short informal hedges. Plant near patios or outdoor gathering spots to enjoy the fragrant shrubs and pollinating visitors.


Meyer Lilac 'Palibin' Characteristics

Meyer Lilacs 'Palibin' are low maintenance shrubs, but proper installation and care are still required. They can tolerate light shade and slightly alkaline soils, though best growth and bloom occurs in full sun and acidic soils. Proper air circulation can help to fend off mildews and molds that commonly plague lilacs. Removing spent flowers before seeds appear can help to encourage more abundant blooms in the following year. If desired, prune to shape after flowering.

'Palibin' are especially resistant to mildews and molds when compared with other lilacs. Some early spring protection may be required to prevent flower buds from succumbing to late frosts.
