The latest in the amazing Bloomerang® series is Dark Purple, a larger shrub with deeper midnight-purple blooms in rounded clusters that reappear regularly from spring until frost. Wonderfully floriferous, this Proven Winner® shrub is ideal for sunny spots in northern and temperate spring gardens.
The flowers begin as dark midnight-purple buds, opening to brilliant lavender-blue blooms with a marvelously sweet fragrance. Perfect for cutflowers as well as garden enjoyment, the flowers arise in big, rounded clusters that last a long time, then encore throughout spring, summer, and even fall. There's never been a Lilac like the Bloomerangs®!
Dark Purple Bloomerang® reaches 5 to 6 feet high and 4 to 5 feet wide, compact and very densely branched. It packs a lot of color into every inch, and because deer find it unappetizing, you can plant it even in open areas without fear of midnight marauders. This is a thoroughly satisfying plant, attractive even out of bloom.
Syringa is a cold-climate shrub, often signaling the coming of spring. The Bloomerangs® are compact enough for containers, and also do well in any sunny, well-drained soil receiving regular sun and water. Long-lived and trouble-free, they are a sheer pleasure. Add Dark Purple Bloomerang® to your garden this season and discover a new favorite that keeps repeating over three long, beautiful seasons! Zones 4-7.
