Syringa meyeri 'Palibin,' commonly known as Meyer lilac or Korean lilac, is a delightful ornamental shrub that belongs to the Oleaceae family. This deciduous shrub is renowned for its compact size, making it an excellent choice for small gardens, courtyards, or even container planting.

The 'Palibin' cultivar typically reaches a height of 1.5 to 2 meters, with a similar spread. Its growth habit is rounded and densely branched, creating a charming and compact appearance. The shrub is adorned with an abundance of fragrant, small, single, lavender-pink flowers that bloom in late spring to early summer. These delicate blossoms attract pollinators such as butterflies and bees, enhancing the garden's biodiversity.

One of the key features of Syringa meyeri 'Palibin' is its dark green, ovate leaves, which provide an attractive backdrop to the profusion of blooms. As autumn approaches, the foliage takes on a beautiful burgundy hue, adding further visual interest to the landscape.

This lilac variety is relatively low-maintenance, requiring full sun to thrive and well-drained soil. Regular pruning, preferably immediately after flowering, helps maintain its compact shape and promotes healthy growth. 'Palibin' lilacs are generally hardy and can tolerate a range of soil conditions, making them versatile and adaptable plants.

Syringa meyeri 'Palibin' is a cherished addition to gardens across the United Kingdom, known for its alluring fragrance, compact size, and stunning visual appeal. Its lovely blossoms and graceful form make it a favourite among gardeners looking to introduce a touch of elegance and fragrance to their outdoor spaces, ensuring it remains a beloved choice in British gardens.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.
