Pollination Info

Pollination Information for Dwarf Korean Lilac (Syringa meyeri 'Palibin')

The Dwarf Korean Lilac (Syringa meyeri 'Palibin') is a deciduous shrub that produces fragrant, pale pink to lavender flowers in clusters during the spring. Packed with nectar and pollen, these flowers attract a variety of pollinators including bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

The Dwarf Korean Lilac is a self-sterile plant, meaning that it requires cross-pollination from another plant in order to produce fruit and seeds. The plant is best pollinated by bees, which are attracted to the flowers' nectar and transfer pollen from one plant to another as they forage.

Planting multiple Dwarf Korean Lilacs in close proximity can increase the chances of successful pollination and fruit production. Alternatively, planting other flowering plants nearby can also attract bees and other pollinators, which can then visit the Dwarf Korean Lilac and facilitate cross-pollination.

It is important to note that Dwarf Korean Lilacs can also be propagated through cuttings, which do not require pollination.
