Bloomerang® Dark Purple Lilac
New & Improved Lilac Blooms for 3 Seasons!
Bloomerang Dark Purple Lilac, Syringa x ‘SMSJGP7’, is a deciduous shrub with outstanding, reblooming flowers. 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.
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!
The Bloomerang Dark Purple Lilac is a clear improvement over the original bloomerang 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. That same compelling aroma is sure to tempt you into cutting a few branches for your kitchen table, making this remarkable Lilac variety a beneficial plant for both inside your home and out.
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). Bloomerang prefers normal to loamy soils and is a relatively low maintenance plant overall. 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!
