Remember the dark purple, weighty lilacs you used to clip at Grandma’s and take home with stems wrapped in tinfoil? These are the lilacs you remember! Bloomerang® lilacs grow on a handsome, rounded shrub with very large, dark purple buds emerging mid to late spring. You’ll recognize the deep purple-lilac color when they open and will love the sweet scent in the air for weeks. We can smell ours indoors when the windows are open!
Bloomerang takes a short rest, then blooms again in mid to late summer, continuing through the first frost. They’ve also been bred for exceptional disease resistance, are sun-loving and deer resistant.
Plant with space for a well-rounded shrub of about 4-6ft tall and wide.
Attracts: butterflies. Resists: deer. Reblooming. Fragrant.
Soil: Average to medium well-drained soil. We recommend Altum’s Soil Amendment and Organic Plant Magic soil additive to improve planting areas.
Pruning: no pruning is necessary. If pruning is desired, do so immediately after spring bloom. Never cut it back in fall, winter, or early spring – doing so will remove the spring flower buds. It is not necessary to prune Bloomerang lilac in order for it to rebloom. However, giving it a light trim after blooming does remove the developing seed heads (they look like green bananas, and some people don’t care for the way they look on the plant), providing a neater look, and encourages more new growth for reblooming. Trimming after blooming will delay the rebloom by a few weeks compared to an untrimmed Bloomerang lilac.
Fertilizer: Fertilize in early spring and again in late spring (after first bloom) with Organic Plant Magic soil additive.
