Enjoy the flowers and fragrance of lilac for months! Most lilac bushes bloom for just a few weeks in spring – but Lilac 'Bloomerang Dark Purple' flowers from spring to summer, and again from late summer to the first frosts, taking just a short break during the hottest weeks of the summer. Panicles of rich purple, highly fragrant flowers which are attractive to butterflies are borne above neat compact growth. A naturally mounding habit means this hardy shrub will fit into most gardens without becoming unruly. These delightful Lilac flowers are also superb for cutting for a vase indoors. Height and spread: 150cm (59").
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Prune lilac bushes in winter or spring by removing any damaged, diseased or misplaced stems before lightly shaping the remaining stems. After pruning, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the shrub.
Pot up lilac plants and grow them on until large enough to plant out in their final positions. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days. If received in the autumn, over-winter Syringa plants in a sheltered position, either in a cold frame, cool greenhouse or porch, ready for planting out in spring. Transplant lilac plants into rich fertile, well drained, neutral or alkaline soil in full sun.
