Lilac - Dwarf Korean Miss Kim

Lilac - Dwarf Korean

Same Lilac scent in a smaller size

Dwarf Korean Lilac (Syringa meyeri 'Palibin') is known as a compact but spreading plant. It is smaller and denser than other Lilac bushes.

The Dwarf Korean Lilac blooms heavily in mid to late spring with dense, showy clusters of pale lilac flowers that are spread over the entire canopy. This variety is very fragrant and begins blooming at an early age.

With a mature height of 4-5 feet The Dwarf Korean Lilac is so versatile. It can fit in tight places and small gardens. A great choice for a foundation plant because it won’t block windows. It is also very tolerant of pollution making it a perfect choice for an urban garden.

The Dwarf Korean Lilac is cold hardy and easy to grow. It is also adaptable to most any soil conditions.

If you love lilacs but thought you didn’t have room for one the Dwarf Korean Lilac is for you. Now you can enjoy the captivating fragrance of lilac in a small yard or even in a decorative planter. Their compact size makes them a great selection for any garden or small landscape.

Twitter limits (API, updates, and following)

Why have limits?

Limits alleviate some of the strain on the behind-the-scenes part of Twitter and reduce
 downtime and error pages. For the sake of reliability, we've placed some limits on the
 account actions below.

Current Twitter limits

The current technical limits for accounts are:
  • Direct messages: 250 per day.
  • Tweets: 2,400 per day. The daily update limit is further broken down into smaller
  •  limits for semi-hourly intervals. Retweets are counted as Tweets.
  • Changes to account email: Four per hour.
  • Following (daily): The technical follow limit is 1,000 per day. Please note that this
  •  is a technical account limit only, and there are additional rules prohibiting aggressive
  •  following behavior. Details about following limits and prohibited behavior are on the
  •  Follow Limits and Best Practices page. 
  • Following (account-based): Once an account is following 2,000 other users, additional
  •  follow attempts are limited by account-specific ratios. The Follow Limits and Best Practices
  •  page has more information.
These limits include actions from all devices, including web, mobile, phone, API, etc. API
 requests from all third-party applications are tracked against the hourly API limit. People
 who use multiple third-party applications with their account will therefore reach the API
 limit more quickly. For more information on this topic, please see our API Rate Limiting page.
These limits may be temporarily reduced during periods of heavy site usage. In such cases,
 we will post an update on the Twitter Status blog.

What happens if I hit a limit?

If you do reach a limit, we'll let you know with an error message telling you which limit you've
 hit. For limits that are time-based (like the direct messages, Tweets, changes to account email
, and API request limits), you'll be able to try again after the time limit has elapsed.
The Tweet limit of 1,000 updates per day is further broken down into semi-hourly intervals.
 If you hit your account update/Tweet limit, please try again in a few hours after the limit
 period has elapsed.

Having trouble?

If you've hit a follow limit, please see this Follow Limit Troubleshooting page for more information.
