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!  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.

  • Tried 2 plants 2 different years - did not survive the season, much less over the winter.

    Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • Purchased 5 of these Bloomarang in Spring of 2012. Pretty pathetic that year. I almost pulled them out and threw them away. Instead I decided to trim them pretty hard that Fall, fed with Hollytone for acid loving plants. So very glad I did not discard them. They are absolutely BEAUTIFUL this spring 2013. Thick, full and as covered in blooms as the PW picture. Hoping they will bloom as well this Fall
