I love lilacs but they bloom early and then we are left with a big leafy bush that is susceptible to powdery mildew.
Proven Winners says you can have healthy lilacs all summer with their Bloomerang Purple…
Enjoy classic lilac fragrance for months instead of weeks! Bloomerang blooms in spring and then again throughout the summer. It does go through a rest period in the heat of the summer … then fragrant flowers continue until frost.
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.
Reblooming AND powdery mildew resistant!
SOLD! I just purchased 5. I’ll keep you posted…
Have you ever grown this variety?
