It's Easy to Plant your Bloomerang Lilac


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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

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.

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.

will this grow in Rocky Point NC 28457 ?
Joyce E on Jul 19, 2014
Best Answer: I would say yes. I'm in West Texas with dry weather and mine is trying to make it. Not ideal for here, but rain and humidity that you have in NC should be great.

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.

Will my Trees and Shrubs 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.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


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.
