Lilac 'Bloomerang® Purple' - 5 Gal.


Syringa x Bloomerang® 'Purple'

There hasn't been this much buzz about a plant in years! People have been clammoring for a reblooming Lilac for years and Proven Winners®/Color Choice® delivers with 'Bloomerang'™, a dense, compact plant with an intense mid May bloom followed by more deliciously fragrant bloom cones throughout the summer and fall. Its May bloom is enough to cover the plant with upright clusters of purple to pink flowers and produce a sweetly fragrant calling card that will entice you into the garden. 'Bloomerang'™ then catches its breath only to start is flowering journey again as early summer progresses. It's a one-of-a-kind plant that is so easy to grow and has so many uses. It fits in most small space gardens because of its dense, compact form and loves to grow in any full sun location with moist, well drained soil. While it is perfect for a colorful specimen, consider using 'Bloomerang'™ grouped to form a fragrant constantly coloring border planting that will be the envy of your neighborhood!
