Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Bloomerang Lilac.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Bloomerang Lilac gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Bloomerang Lilac again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

These are the hardiest lilacs I've ever had. Got them last summer, but failed to plant. They stayed in their pots, frozen solid, for months of a Connecticut winter. When the season turned, they kicked back to life (still in their original pots), with numerous buds! They're now in the ground and growing and blooming lushly! Amazing

Pleasantly surprised! !
I ordered 2 of these to finish my new planter. My local nurseries were out of stock & I wanted to finish. They arrived sooner than I expected & were nicer as well. I planted them the next day & after the 10th day I have started to get a bloom on one of them! They were quite fuller than I expected! A little pricey, but sometimes u just have to go for it!!! Will definitely consider purchasing from FGT's again!!!

I chose this lilac shrub because of the dwarf size and long blooming season.
Pamela K on Nov 1, 2015
We picked this item to complete our new backyard planter. We went with all flowering shrubs for the visual and aromatic aspects. This item will be directly under our bedroom windows, and will also be close enough to our back porch for our summer enjoyment!!

How high are 3 gal. and 1 gal. boomerang lilac?
Bruce H on Jan 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My 3 gallon size bloomerang came in a DORMANT STATE, no leaves. It was about 11" high. It was so small I questioned as to whether or not I was scammed. This was 2 months ago. The leaves erupted. It is now double the size and covered with many small leaves. I am very impressed with its rapid growth. But, still wonder if it will flower this calendar year.
I planted a couple last year and they are to close to the deck can I move them?
A shopper on Jul 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Enter an answer to this question. Sorry Shopper, I am not able to answer your question as an expert on this subject. The tree I brought was planted in a large pot, not in the ground. The grower of your gardener maybe the better source for an answer.
lilac planted one week;curently leaves look wilted! Do you have possible cause and solution?
jim r on Jun 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The wilting could be due to transition shock. Often times in the summer plants lose their leaves during shipping due to the heat, and they'll shed their leaves to protect themselves. Once they get established they will perk right back up. If the leaves turn brown remove them and new foliage will fill in. This is normal. Give it about three weeks to improve.
when do you prune?
A shopper on Sep 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, my Bloomerang Lilac did not survive our harsh winter this past year, so I am unable to answer your question. Apologize.
Stephen K. B on Jul 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That is something that would possibly work, but I would not recommend. Due to this plant being outside of the recommended growing zone we cannot put a warranty on it.
does the boomerang lilac loose its leaves in the winter in California?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Bloomerang Lilacs are deciduous, they commonly lose their leaves. However in warmer climates their leaves can survive. It depends on your area, and if there are any cold winds or cold snaps.
Does this lilac plant have a very strong fragrance? I really like the look of lilacs, and I like that this plant is suppose to bloom for so long, but I mostly want lilacs for the amazing perfume smell...
Elizabeth G on Jul 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would characterize the fragrance as "delicate." I grew up in Madison Wisconsin, and the UW Arboretum there has a huge lilac garden with at least 20 different varieties. You could go around and smell all of them, ranging from the wimpy to delicate to heavy to kinda weird/slightly stinky. I wouldn't say the Bloomerang's scent is super strong, and the entire plant (including the flowers) is dwarf. So don't imagine huge sets of flowers draping heavily over your garden and relentlessly churning out aroma. You may catch a whiff in passing and you'll need to lean over for a good deep draft of it. But it is a good, nice, classic lilac scent.
were will lilac grow?
Brenda J on Jul 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Our Bloomerang lilac bloomed well this spring and is doing OK now in a location that is shaded for much of the day. I did use plenty of good compost around the root ball when I planted it. The only issue is that I'm sure it will bloom a lot better in a sunnier location.
Will the bloomerang lilac grow best in acid soil, or should I add some lime???? Atlanta GA
Ruth E on Jun 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sorry to say Ruth I cannot answer your question because the lilacs I purchased only survived one year. I recently planted rose of Sharon in the same location and same soil as the lilacs and they seem to be growing well.

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
