Bloomerang® Dark Purple Lilac, (Syringa x 'SMSJGP7' PP26,549), is a deciduous shrub with outstanding, reblooming flowers!

Bloomerang® Dark Purple Lilac will grow 4-6 feet tall with an equal spread. It has a compact, mounded nature, and can be easily trimmed back after its spring bloom (if you prefer a more manicured shape).

Just as the name implies, Bloomerang® will give you a burst of spring color, then boomerang back to give you another blast of floral vibrancy from mid-summer through fall.

While some Lilac varieties will provide only weeks of floral radiance, Bloomerang will keep going for months! Reblooming Lilacs like these have deep purple flower buds and improved disease resistance!

The Bloomerang® Dark Purple Lilac is a clear improvement over the original variety, providing a much larger cluster of flowers for your home as well.

As if the bright, repeating display weren't enough, Bloomerang acts as an irresistible draw to butterflies, bees and hummingbirds with its rich fragrance.

How to Use Bloomerang® Dark Purple Lilac In The Landscape

This variety of Lilac would be a terrific choice as a floral border along your property line, or as a colorful hedge to brighten that bare, exterior wall of your garage.

These will even do well in containers for your patio! Bloomerang Lilacs look amazing in mixed-borders and foundation plantings where their 3 seasons of interest really can show off!

That same compelling aroma is sure to tempt you into cutting a few branches for your kitchen table bouquets, making this remarkable Lilac variety a beneficial plant for both inside your home and out.

A focal point that will add eye-catching curb appeal making traffic slowing down to have a look! Be the envy of your neighborhood with a row separating your property from the road!

Create garden vignettes by planting a curved row of these impressive shrubs around a focal point, garden seating or sculpture!

#ProPlantTips For Care

Bloomerang® prefers a full sun location, must have well-drained soil that is moderately moist. Be sure to keep high-nitrogen lawn fertilizer away from the roots.

Lilac also tolerates partial sun or part shade in warmer climates, especially during the hot afternoon summer heat. Mulch to keep the roots cool and hold in moisture.

Remember you should not prune your Lilac until the first set of flowers finishes in late spring -- and then you can reduce the size or shape, or remove the old flower heads by giving the shrub a light trim.

Wildlife love Bloomerang, but deer tend to pass it by. Overall, it's a strong grower that will produce well while requiring little from you in return.

Bloomerang® Dark Purple Lilac delivers a "blooming boomerang" of floral brilliance from spring through fall. With its high-performing features and versatile nature, it's certainly an exceptional choice for your home this year! Order yours now!

Don't Prune Lilacs During Fall or Early Spring
