This is really one of the easiest shrubs that you can grow, and one of the most rewarding. All Pink Perfume really needs average, well-drained soil that is moderately moist and in plenty of sun. Hardy in USDA zones 3-7, grow your Lilacs in an area with good air circulation. Be sure to keep high-nitrogen lawn fertilizer away from the roots. Mulch to keep the roots cool and hold in moisture. Apply a moderate amount of water on a regular basis while your plant is young, for container plants and during times of extended drought. Air circulation is important for Lilacs, so find a breezy place for them to perform at their best.
Don’t miss a single bloom! Follow these easy Pruning steps for the best flowering:
Bloomerang® Pink Perfume Lilac blooms on old and new wood, so no pruning is required for it to perform its best. Right after the flowers are done, it’s time to prune. Don’t delay, as Lilacs will produce next year’s flowers on the new growth from this year. Snip the past flowers, then remove inward-heading branches and the thickest stems out at ground level. The goal is to let the interior of the shrub have plenty of sunlight and air circulation.
Once your Lilac plants have been growing for about 10 years, you’ll want to start a regular schedule of renewal pruning, and removal of suckers (when needed). After the blooms are fading, cut a few of the oldest, thickest branches right down to the ground each year. The younger, thinner branches remain and keep your plant vigorous and healthy.
Renewal pruning is great for your Lilac shrub. Removing the oldest growth lets the new branches take their turn. The youngest branches will produce the best bloom for you the following spring. Prune to keep an open interior to reduce the chances of powdery mildew.
Overall, it’s a strong grower that will produce well while requiring little from you in return. The sooner you order, the sooner you can enjoy this great shrub in your own garden!
