Enjoy your own butterfly garden with this consistently reblooming lilac. It has a sweet fragrance and attracts hummingbirds as well.
It's not susceptible to common diseases and does best in fertile, well drained soils. It is low upkeep; prune lightly and fertilize to encourage new growth.
Its first bloom is a heavy bloom in mid-May. It rests in June then begins again in July and blooms on every single branch until frost.
Landscaping benefits include an upright, dwarf flowering shrub with fountain-like long branches. Pair it with perennials and shrubs for a much admired look.
Take your garden patch from a dull landscape to one that is exciting with blooms popping out and color everywhere!
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.
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.
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.
