Syringa Bloomerang Dark Purple or Bloomerang Lilac Dark Purple
Syringa Bloomerang differs from Common Lilac (Syringa Vulgaris) as Bloomerang Lilacs blooms twice in the season. Variety Syringa Bloomerang Dark Purple is a multi-blooming lilac that springs back to produce a second flush of flowers in mid-summer until autumn. This is a hardworking, beautiful shrub with a stunning scent that fits into any garden design.
Bloomerang Lilac Dark Purple has a second flush of flowers after the traditional spring bloom. It also differs from its parent Bloomerang Purple Lilac because it is much bigger and has larger more rounded florets. The flowers are pinkish-purple shades that open from very dark buds. As with all lilacs these small flowers cluster to produce large sweet-scented heads that are loved by pollinators. Lilacs are smothered with butterflies in the summer months and Bloomerang Lilac Dark Purple attracts a sea of fluttering colour with its larger than average flowers. The foliage is bright green with attractive veins that contrast perfectly beneath the purple blooms.
How Hardy Is Syringa Bloomerang Dark Purple
Bloomerang Lilac Dark Purple is a hardy, tough shrub that will survive sub zero temperatures in the UK and return to bloom each spring.
How to Use Syringa Bloomerang Dark Purple
This re-blooming lilac grows neatly in a mound shape. It also retains a modest height and spread of 150 cm. Syringa Bloomerang Dark Purple holds its own in the flower border and works well as a statement plant in the lawn or front garden. Its repeat blooming habit means it remains attractive for the whole growing season, which is something that other plants struggle to achieve.
It works well in a cottage garden with its delicate pretty heads, benefits wildlife gardens with its spring to autumn nectar source, and suits a gardener that’s short on time. This lilac cultivar is so low maintenance it can be left to its own devices without becoming a mess.
If you prefer, it can be grown in well-watered containers to create a natural fragrant display on the patio or near to seating areas. If you enjoy scented cut flowers in the house, Syringa Bloomerang Dark Purple provides vases with decoration for the entire summer.
How To Care For Syringa Bloomerang Dark Purple
This is a low maintenance shrub that requires little if no care. If planted in a sunny spot with neutral to alkaline soil it will thrive, but it will grow well in most soils of any pH too. In more acid soils, dig plenty of well rotted manure around the roots and top it up each year. De-head when the flowers fade, as this keeps the display fresh and vigorous. You can prune back to whatever shape and size you desire in early spring before the flower buds appear, but this is not necessary.
Bloomerang Syringa Dark Purple is an attractive hard-working shrub that deserves a place in every garden. It’s a top choice for folk who love colour and scent with low maintenance habits. This is a strong grower with a reliable nature that is suitable for all gardens and experience levels.
