Tips for Care:

Grow your Lilacs in an area with good air circulation. Bloomerang® prefers a full sun location and must have well-drained soil that is moderately moist. Be sure to keep high-nitrogen lawn fertilizer away from the roots. Lilac also tolerates partial sun or part shade in warmer climates, especially during the hot afternoon summer heat. (But you may see smaller or fewer blooms in less sun). Mulch to keep the roots cool and hold in moisture.

If you live with deer in your area, apply repellent spray on planting day. Deer are hungry and curious, and you want to train them to leave your plants alone. Reapply according to the label. Remember you should not prune your Lilac until the first set of flowers finishes in late spring, and then you can reduce the size or shape, or remove the old flower heads by giving the shrub a light trim. Follow these easy Pruning steps for the best flowering.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Easy to Grow & Low Maintenance

  • Moderate Moisture & Mulched Beds
