Description

Darker flowers than the original Bloomerang® lilac - and an improved production plant to boot.

Bloomerang® Dark Purple lilac is a bolder, bigger version of the original in every way. Blooms are a very deep purple, particularly in bud. Growers as far south as the Carolinas have reported excellent success in production with this selection.

Soil

Prefers neutral to alkaline soils, but is fairly adaptable. Good drainage is imperative.

Pruning

Blooms on old and new wood - prune after spring bloom if desired. Doing so will delay rebloom but also encourages it.

Uses

Hedges; mixed borders; foundation plantings; specimen.

Growing Tips

A light trim after spring bloom neatens the plant's appearance and encourages rebloom, though it does delay it slightly.
