These fragrant lilac flowering shrubs are best pruned right after the spring bloom, as this creates a fuller shrub with more branches and thus more flowers. Every stem can produce flowers in summer. The Bloomerang™ Purple Reblooming Lilac Shrub is mildew resistant. These plants bloom heavily in the spring, take a resting period, and then start up again in mid-summer and continue until cold weather. Their second period of blooming is not as full as that in the spring, but still showy.
Flowering Lilac shrubs are among the best-known, classic spring flowering shrubs. For generations of reliable bloom and sweet fragrance, generally before Memorial Day, these sturdy shrubs are in a class by themselves. As with most Lilacs, the Bloomerang Purple Lilacs prefer full sun and neutral to slightly alkaline soil.
