Description

Thanks to its better color, performance, and production, Bloomerang Dark Purple lilac replaces the original.

Enjoy classic lilac fragrance for months instead of weeks! A revolutionary lilac, Bloomerang® Purple lilac blooms in spring and then again throughout the summer. It does go through a rest period in the heat of the summer, then flowers. Useful compact habit and excellent powdery mildew resistance.

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.
