Syringa Bloomerang® Dark Purple Description
Get the lilac that blooms more than once! Bloomerang® Dark Purple lilac (Syringa sp.) blooms alongside other lilacs in mid-spring, then after a brief rest to create new growth, begins to bloom again in summer and continues through frost. In mild years, you just might have lilacs on Thanksgiving! The blooms of Bloomerang Dark Purple lilac are a deeper color than the original Bloomerang Purple, especially when in bud. This is a small-leaved lilac that is much more disease resistant than other types, so it’s a trouble-free way to enjoy the heavenly fragrance of lilacs. Another great lilac from the plant experts at Proven Winners.
Lilacs are far more cold tolerant than they are heat tolerant, and actually require a period of cold temperatures in order to bloom well. They can easily be grown in containers or in the landscape, as long as they get plenty of sun and have well-drained soil.

Soil: Lilacs do best in neutral to alkaline soils. Well-drained soil is imperative, as lilacs can suffer from root rot and other diseases in wet soil. Tolerates dry conditions once established, but avoid excessive dryness when in bloom, as this will shorten the flower life.
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day)
Space: 4-6' apart.
Fertilizing: Apply a granular rose fertilizer in early spring and again after the first round of bloom has finished.
Winterizing: A good 2-3" layer of mulch is recommended; nothing else is needed.
Maintenance: Lilacs bloom on old wood, so should only be pruned after their spring bloom. Reblooming lilacs like Bloomerang do not require deadheading or pruning in order to rebloom, but a light trim will neaten the appearance and encourage new growth. Keep plants happy and growing vigorously to enjoy the best rebloom.
