Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

DescriptionA space-saving, dwarf version of the original reblooming lilac! Now, anyone has space for a lilac. Bloomerang® Dwarf Purple lilac (Syringa sp.) from Proven Winners reaches just 3’ tall and wide, so it’s easy to fit into your landscape or perennial garden. Like the other Bloomerang lilacs, it blooms in mid-late spring along with other lilacs, then after a little rest to put on new growth, begins to bloom again in mid-summer through frost. Flower clusters are fragrant and perfect for cutting to enjoy in a vase.
Bloomerang lilacs are disease resistant and very easy to grow. Just plant in sun and well-drained soil and enjoy the show!DetailsBotanical name: Syringa x 'SMNJRPU' Patent #: USPP 29,831 Common name: Lilac, Reblooming lilac Zone: 3-7 Sun exposure: Full sun (6+ hours sun) Height x width: 2.5-3' Flower color: Purple Foliage color: Green Season of Interest: Spring-fall Bloom time: Summer Features: Space savers, proven winners, heat tolerant, fragrant, deer resistant, container plants, cold tolerant, best sellers Uses: Specimen, hedge, perennial gardens, landscaping. How To GrowSoil: Average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Light: Tolerates filtered sunlight but prefers full sun. Water: Average. It can adapt to dry or moist conditions but cannot tolerate standing water or soggy soils. Spacing: 3 ft Fertilizing: Fertilize at planting time or in early spring once the ground is thawed and once more in late spring after it finishes its first bloom. Winterizing: Appreciates a winter mulch in the northern parts of its growing range. Bloomerang lilac needs a season of cold weather to bloom well; they thrive in climates as cold as USDA zone 3. Maintenance & Pruning: If you want to prune, do so immediately after its spring bloom. Never cut back in fall, winter, or early spring as doing so will remove spring flower buds.
