The Bloomerang Dark Purple Reblooming Lilac is a best seller bred by Proven Winners ColorChoice. The number 1 complaint for lilacs is how short the bloom season is. This shrub solves that problem by reblooming once or twice after the initial bloom! The first bloom is in mid to late spring. Then the plant takes a quick break, before blooming again in late summer, which lasts through the first frost. There are purple colored flowers that bloom during spring/summer/fall. The flowers bloom on both old & new wood, which mean the flower buds are grown on branches grown the prior year and also the branches that are part of the new growth of the plant. While no plants are truly deer proof, these plants are deer resistant. The Bloomerang Dark Purple Lilac will also attract butterflies & many other pollinators when in bloom!
In garden planters, use this in the thriller role. Those are plants with drama and that add height or a vertical element to the combination. These are typically in the center or the back of the container. Consider growing these in garden planters or containers for added flexibility on locations limited on space or sunlight. The Bloomerang Dark Purple Lilac typically grows 4-6 feet tall, and 4-6 feet wide. For best plant health and results, space these plants 4-7 feet apart, center on center. The growth habit is mounded. These shrubs are sun loving and can handle the hottest summer days. It is deer resistant but attracts pollinators including butterflies of course! Plant these in a location that gets at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. It is winter hardy in growing zones 3a, 3b, 4a, 4b, 5a, 5b, 6a, 6b, 7a, 7b.
Interesting Fact(s) - The name of Syringa is from the Greek word syrinx, which means tube. The stems of lilacs contain a spongy center that you can remove that creates a hollow tube.
