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 just planted my reblooming Lilac this spring, it had a few blooms at the time of planting and only bloomed one bloom later in the summer---I know it will bloom more next year. It is very healthy and doing well --too young to decide yet how often it will rebloom.

Hasn't Bloomed yet but hasn't died either
Our weather has been very erratic, and we have lost plants before in this location. So that being said, we are optimistic that this Liliac may still pull through.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Bloomerang® Lilac

Bloomerang® Lilac Planting Diretions

The luxurious Common Purple Lilac (also known as Syringa 'Penda') is known for its beautiful blooms and fragrant scent. This gorgeous plant reaches a mature height and width of 4-5 ft and is grown best in USDA growing zones 3-7.

Plant lovers across the board admire this plant because it blooms heavy in May and after a brief rest period, re-blooms in July into the late fall. This showy plant does best in Full to Partial Sunlight (4-6 hours daily). Its normal growth rate is considered to be moderate; Lilac growth can range from 12-24 inches yearly; depending your growing environment and conditions.

Choosing a location: Lilacs can tolerate full sun to partial shade, but prefer 6 hours of sun for the best blooms. In warmer climates, plant your lilacs in afternoon shade so that they are not exposed to the hot afternoon sun. Lilacs prefer rich, moist soil but do not like to be in areas that retain water for a long period of time.

Planting directions:
1) After choosing your area, dig a hole that is twice as wide and just as deep as the container that the plant arrives in.
2) Carefully remove the plant from the container. Lightly tapping the container will help to loosen it if it is difficult to remove.
3) Lightly comb the roots with your fingers to loosen the roots so that the spread out more quickly.
4) Place your plant in the hole so that the top of the soil is even with the surrounding soil level.
5) Back fill with a mixture of native soil and compost. These plants like rich soil so you can use a 50/50 mixture of compost and native soil. Water after every few inches to remove any air pockets. Tamp the soil well when done to eliminate air pockets.
6) Water well when done and cover the area with mulch to protect the roots and help them conserve moisture.

Watering: Lilacs like moist but not wet soil, they will need to be watered regularly while establishing. They’ll need water once or twice a week (sometimes more in extreme heat), allowing the soil to dry 1-2 inches down before watering again.

Pruning: Lilacs do not need much pruning except to remove damaged or crossing branches. If you remove faded or spent flowers immediately, it will increase the amount of flowers the following season.

Fertilization: Fertilize lilacs in early spring before bloom with a well balanced fertilizer to encourage growth and blooms. A 10-10-10 or all purpose shrub fertilizer will be adequate, please read and follow the label instructions.

This is for my mom for Mother's Day. Lilacs were always her favorite flowers but buying cut lilac bouquets is next to impossible. I figured a whole Lilac bush or two would solve that problem! Can't wait to receive them!

The Blooming Lilac looks like it will be the perfect cover for in front of my deck and so much prettier than putting lattis or something else to cover the underneath part of the deck. I think I will love the aroma coming from the flowers while sitting on my deck.

It is ever blooming - I do not have a lilac in my garden that blooms like this one claims.
Pamela S on Mar 30, 2016
I came from NY and we alway had a lilac bush. I moved to fl and was surprised to see that they didn't have them here. So I'm hoping if I keep them in a pot instead of planting it outside, they will be ok. My fingers are crossed! I miss lilac's so much. I have fond memories of my mom cutting them for us to bring to our teacher. And the fragrance is just spiritual!

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: Absolutely. Move them before they get too big and established.
when do you prune?
A shopper on Sep 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Remove spent blooms promptly to encourage reblooming. Prune to shape after blooming in spring and fall. Flower production may decline during extremely hot summers but will resume when temperatures cool in fall. Apply a controlled release fertilizer in the spring.
How will it do in zone 7 ?
Patty on May 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My Boomerang Lilac has done very well since I planted it. The drought last summer and mild winter hasn't seemed to have harmed it. This is the first lilac I have planted and am enjoying it very much. Zone 7 seems to agree with it.
I have a wet area. Would this shrub work there?
Melissa H on Sep 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Lilac's do not like wet feet, and will not bloom with too much water.
What should I do when winter comes? Do I cover them etc, do ai water them? I live in PA
Ekaterina M on May 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I didn't and they came back fine this year.
How long does it take for the plant to reach its full growth?
Sandra W on Jul 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Average rate they grow can range from 12-24 inches yearly;
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.
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.
How does the Boomarang lilac fare in North Texas?

How will the boomerang lilac grow in sandy soil? Suggestions or recommendations???
Perplexed on Jun 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think it needs more water retention than sandy soil (which drains quickly) will provide. Mine is in clay soil that has been amended and does better when I water it regularly. It was slow growing the first couple of years but is starting to do better, even though we presently have a heat index in Dallas, TX of about 100+ the last few days. I have several other plants with it and it seems happier with companions. It does not look like the picture yet!
Due to the extreme heat of 90 to 100° in North Texas and sometimes in the winter as low as freezing, will this lilac bush survive?
Betty C on Mar 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The growing zones are 3-7. Click the link to look up what growing zone you are in.
I know it's late to begin planting but is it possible that if I do the plant will take and survive the winter until next spring??? I am in zone 7.
Thank you for your help. It's a beautiful looking bush and I would love to have it in my garden.
Jana B on Jul 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have transplanted these lilacs as late as October last year. They survived fine and are thriving. Just make sure you give them plenty of good soil that is well drained. Water them a bunch after planting and you will love these. They bloom 3 to 5 times a year depending on the weather.
Can it be planted close to the house? Does it have the same issues as regular lilacs regarding the roots?
Y N on May 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Lilac roots aren't considered real invasive as long as you leave enough space between the tree, or shrub, and the structure, there is little risk from planting lilacs near foundations. Since lilac root systems are shallow, they can only reach the base of shallow foundations. If you have a deep foundation, there is little risk of damage.
I received my liliac as a get well gift. I just had back surgery, so I can't replant it now. It is in a 1 gallon pot, looks root bound, can it stay in the container till spring?
janet r on Nov 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can keep it in the container until you a ready to plant.
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.
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: Yes you would need to add some lime. They like their soil to be neutral to alkaline soil (at a pH near 7.0)
