I don't know about Miss Kim in particular but Lilacs are known for their longetivity. As in hundreds of years. My grandmother had one in her yard in Unionville NV in the 1960's that was clearly visible in a photo taken in the 1860's.

It may be that your lilac needs some nutrients and fresh soil dug in around it.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and proclaiming...."WOW What a Ride!!" -Mark Frost
