The Q&A Archives: Miss Kim Lilacs Did Not Bloom

Question: Two of my Miss Kims did not bloom this year. They are in full sun. My Dwarf Korean lilac which is next to one of them bloomed profusely.

Answer: How long have your 'Miss Kim' lilacs been planted in this location? 'Miss Kim' is a slow grower - if they were planted just in the last couple of years, they may need more time to mature before blooming. Other things that may keep a lilac from blooming are too much fertilizer, very poor soil, and improper pruning (which eliminates the flower buds). I hope this information is helpful!
