Double the Blooms with Reblooming Lilac

BLOOMERANG LILAC

Get ready for some major blooming with this new reblooming lilac ~ the Bloomerang Lilac. Bloomerangs bloom heavily in spring, taking a brief resting period, and then start up again in mid-summer continuing until cold weather sets in. Now you can enjoy classic lilac fragrance for months instead of weeks! While traditional lilac varieties bloom for a few short weeks in spring, Bloomerang's fragrant flowers continue until frost. This compact, mounded variety fits easily into any landscape. Reaching just 4 to 5 feet tall, it is ideal as a foundation planting or as part of the mixed border. You can even include it into perennial beds. Lilacs are easy to grow in full sun and average, well-drained soil. These long-lived shrubs will bring years of enjoyment.

Why we love this beauty:

  • Small habit fits into any garden
  • Fragrant flowers
  • Attracts butterflies
  • Great cut flower for arrangements
  • Deer resistant
  • Provides fall interest
