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.
