Special Attributes

A Lilac that blooms for months instead of weeks? Yep. The Bloomerang Purple Lilac produces loads of fragrant flowers in spring before taking a rest during summer and then blooming again in fall all the way to frost! The second bloom isn't quite as much as the first, but it's still quite showy. Its smaller size and compact, mounded form to 4 feet tall and 5 feet wide fits into smaller garden spaces than its taller growing cousins. A perfect choice for containers. Its parentage includes four different Lilac species: Syringa patula x macrophylla x meyeri x juliana. This breeding has resulted in excellent mildew resistance and heat tolerance, even here in our Georgia gardens. 



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a compact mound 4 to 5 feet tall and wide, Bloomerang Purple Lilac fits into smaller garden spaces than its taller growing cousins as is a perfect choice for containers. It is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings or as a natural hedge in larger landscape and flowering shrub borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to fragrance gardens, cut flower gardens, butterfly gardens, cottage gardens and pink color theme gardens. 

Suggested Spacing:  4' for solid hedges; 8' or more for space between plants



Cultural Preferences

Plant your Bloomerang Lilac in full sun in northern zones and provide some shade or filtered sun during the hottest part of summer afternoons in southern USDA Zones 7b-8a. The Bloomerang Lilac is listed by many for planting in USDA Zones 3a-7b, however, they have performed well in our gardens here in USDA 8a! Likes a moist but well-drained soil with pH close to neutral. Add pelletized lime if your soil is extremely acid. Fertilize once, in early spring, with a light application of an organic plant food or slow-release shrub & tree fertilizer. Prune as necessary after bloom in spring.
