A classic addition to foundation plantings and mixed borders.

Maintenance Notes: 

Requires well-drained soil and full sun. Remove spent blooms promptly to encourage reblooming. Prune to shape after blooming. Flower production may decline during extremely hot summers but will resume when temperatures cool in fall. Apply a controlled release fertilizer in the spring. This variety has good powdery mildew resistance.

When we say this lilac is a two-timer, we mean it in the nicest possible way! Enjoy classic lilac fragrance for months instead of weeks! A revolutionary new kind of lilac, Bloomerang blooms in spring and then again throughout the summer. It does go through a rest period in the heat of the summer, then flowers. 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, and is ideal as a foundation planting or as part of the mixed border. You can even include it into perennial beds.

  • Bought this rebloomer when it first came out in Home & Gardeen magazine several years ago when I lived near Kansas City, MO. Grew like crazy and after first year getting established, it bloomed all spring, summer and fall. Plant was covered in blooms. Fragrance was fantastic. Just moved to north Texas and have ordered 3 plants. Will see if they do as well in TX as in MO. sour hope so as it drew nothing but great comments from neighbors in MO. Plus I love lilacs and lilac fragrance.

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • My comment mirrors Tim W from Illinois. took 3-4 years but finally big beautiful blossoms. In my location, southeastern Massachusetts, I have problems with a fungus that attacks certain plants, this was one of them. However, if I spray early and often with fungicide, everything works ok.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • at first I was not impressed with this shrub's performance. it took three summers before it produced any flowers at all. this year though, it exploded with full, fragrant blooms and is easily the most impressive plant on our property. it has also produced a couple suckers this spring, so we get the added bonus of extra lilac shrubs down the road! it took a while, but the boomerang has won me over.

  • It's winter now. My Bloomerang has had 2 summers in the ground and has failed to honor its reputation. It has been fed organically, is planted in full sun, and while it has bloomed in Spring, no rebloom to it. The bush itself is spindly and airy and the blooms rather unremarkable compared to my common lilac. It has one more year with me.....these are not inexpensive and I try to never give up on a plant, but I would rather have something that pleases me.

    Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.
