Description:

A dwarf hybrid lilac that's just the right size for the garden, producing a plethora of sweetly fragrant lilac-purple flowers in spring; reblooms constantly throughout the summer showing color until fall

Ornamental Features

Bloomerang® Dark Purple Lilac is blanketed in stunning panicles of fragrant purple flowers with lilac purple overtones at the ends of the branches from early spring to late fall. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The small pointy leaves do not develop any appreciable fall color. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes

Bloomerang® Dark Purple Lilac is a dense multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Bloomerang® Dark Purple Lilac is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Mass Planting
  • Hedges/Screening
  • General Garden Use

Planting & Growing

Bloomerang® Dark Purple Lilac will grow to be about 6 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 6 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
