Pruning-  Dwarf Korean Lilac shrubs should be pruned immediately after the plant is done blooming.  Removing old flower clusters will encourage new flowers to emerge.  Pruning at other times of the year will not hurt the plant, but it may reduce the amount of flowers for the next season.  Do not remove more than one third of the plant durning a pruning session.  Removing too much of the plant at one time may stress the plant.
