Plant Features

The Bloomerang® Dark Purple Reblooming Lilac produces large darker purple blooms that fill the air with perfumed air for weeks. Then the plants rest a bit after the spring blooming period before reblooming again during mid-summer and continue through frost. This syringa variety offers excellent disease resistance.

To ensure your Bloomerang Dark Purple Reblooming Lilac thrives, it's best to fertilize just after its initial spring bloom. Regular watering will promise a vibrant second bloom. Since it flowers on both new and old wood, prune only right after the spring bloom concludes. Lastly, apply a generous layer of mulch for winter protection.

Beautiful plant- NOT DEER RESISTANT

As with most of the plants I have ordered from GrowJoy, this lilac arrived in perfect condition. Unfortunately, I believed GJ when they said lilacs were deer resistant & didn’t take proper precautions when I left the pot on my patio table one night & found the majority of it gone the next morning. It’s healthy enough that I expect it to bounce back & I take full responsibility for not understanding that deer do not read the directions on gardening websites. But don’t make my mistake: 98% of “deer resistant” plants are on their menu.

Everything I get from Grow Joy has looked healthy. And as always packaged well, and the boxes even have some ventilation.

Love this reblooming lilac!

I purchased this variety after the blooming season was over with last year so I wanted to wait for a review till it bloomed this season. Wow, I absolutely loved how it beautifully it bloomed throughout the year. No more one and done with this one. Thanks GrowJoy.

Excellent healthy quality Lilac plant

Very surprised when arrived. Packing was perfect and plant size fantastic. My baby Lilac was bigger than expected and all leaves bounced back quickly after opening. Be assured that this site will send you quality plants.
