Planting & Care

How to Plant & Care for Your new Bloomerang® Purple Reblooming Lilac

The Bloomerang® Purple Re-blooming Lilac is easy to care for.  This lilac enjoys full sun and is adaptable to variety of soils as long as they are well-drained. The Bloomerang series is drought tolerant once established.  Water deeply twice weekly for the first few months.  Once established water when the ground is dry.  Fertilize with a slow release fertilizer in spring for best results.  No need to prune this lilac, but if you do, right after spring blooms fade is the time recommended.  The flowers bloom on old and new wood.  Deadheading old blooms does encourage faster and more plentiful reblooming, but isn’t necessary if you want to avoid the task. Bloomerang® lilacs are deer resistant.

Avoid diseases and pests by providing the ideal environment for your plant to thrive.  Bloomerang lilacs are disease resistant.  So, you are much less likely to need to spray fungicides like with common lilacs.  Not many pests bother this lilac.  However watch out for Scale and Borers.  Scale is an insect seen on the underside of leaves, stems, and branches.  They may look cottony or waxy and move slowly or not at all.  These insects are parasitic so they can be a problem if they become abundant.  They can be treated with neem oil.  Be sure to thoroughly cover the entire plant and apply multiple doses. If you see holes in the stems of your plant you have Borers.  These are generally hard to treat without pruning the plant back as they live inside the plant.  However, natural pesticide, Bacillus thuringiensis can be an effective treatment.

Planting your lilac:  Find a nice sunny spot to plant your lilac. Dig a hole 1½ times bigger than the pot. Gently remove the plant from the pot and pull apart the roots a little bit at the bottom and sides. Place your Lilac bush inside the hole, ensuring that the root ball is level with the surrounding surface. Tamp the soil in place to remove any oxygen bubbles and water it thoroughly.

In Containers:  Be sure your container is well draining.  Lilacs do not do well in excess water.  Monitor soil often to ensure it is not saturated and water when dry. Nutrients are flushed out of the soil in container grown plants so be sure to fertilize more often.  Early and late spring as well as late summer are good times for the Pink Perfume.  Be sure to move your plant to a larger container if you see any signs of the plant being root bound like roots coming out of drainage holes.

Landscaping Ideas

Landscape Ideas for your Bloomerang® Purple Reblooming Lilac

This Lilac bush is great to use in a mixed plant bed border or even as a foundation plant. This shrub only reaches a height of 4-6 feet, so it is great to use under windows planted behind low bearing perennials or annuals. Use it in a container, and be sure to place your lilac where you can always catch a drift of its sweet fragrance.

Planting Instructions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 2 - 3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

Very satisfied
This was one of two items I ordered in my first purchase from this company, and I was pleased with both. This plant arrived packaged very well, and was taller and fuller than I anticipated. It looked healthy and transitioned nicely to its new home. Can't wait for it to bloom!
