Bloomerang® Pink Perfume Lilac
Classic Lilac Fragrance on Reblooming Plants
Once a year is simply not enough to enjoy the intoxicating fragrance of lilacs; gardeners spoke and plant breeders responded! The Bloomerang series of lilacs was bred specifically as re-blooming plants to give you an extended flower show over multiple seasons. Bloomerang Pink Perfume Lilac (Syringa x ‘Pink Perfume’ BLOOMERANG®) delivers on its name -- perfume-scented pink flowers that keep coming and coming!
• Spring, summer and fall blossoms. After a heavy flush of spring flowers, Bloomerang Pink Perfume Lilac brings you another round of flowers in mid-summer through fall.
• No pruning needed. Although pruning is not required to promote flowering, if you prune plants after the first round of flowers in spring, they’ll still bloom again in summer.
• Mildew- and deer-resistant. Other lilacs are often plagued by mildew, which is a fungal disease, but Bloomerang Pink Perfume Lilac is a mildew-resistant cultivar. Plants are also deer-resistant, so the exquisite flowers will be a feast for your senses instead of a feasting casualty of visiting deer!
A Natural Nectar Feeder
If you enjoy watching butterflies and hummingbirds, Bloomerang Pink Perfume Lilac is a must-have for your garden. These delightful creatures can’t seem to get their fill of the sweet nectar produced by the flowers! Plant Bloomerang Pink Perfume Lilac within scent-distance so you can enjoy its fragrance and within sight-distance so you can enjoy the flurry of activity from butterfly and hummingbird visitors.
Bloomerang Pink Perfume Lilac is cold-hardy, growing as a perennial across USDA plant hardiness zones 3 through 7. It performs best in the cooler regions of its zone range, and it performs marginally well in warmer climates. Intense summer heat typically diminishes flower production, but flowers resume when the weather turns cooler. Plant Bloomerang Pink Perfume Lilac in neutral pH soil (only slightly acidic or slightly basic/alkaline), and make sure the soil drains well.
Design tip: This is a plant that responds favorably to being planted in raised beds to ensure good drainage.
