Bloomerang Lilac Care
Grow reblooming lilacs in full sun for best results. These hardy lilacs are quite adaptable and can grow in any well-drained soil. Once established, Bloomerang lilacs need little, if any, care. They are drought tolerant, but enjoy a nice soak from time to time during dry periods. We recommend fertilizing these plants lightly in spring with a balanced slow release fertilizer. These dwarf lilacs don’t require pruning, but if you choose to do so, prune them in late spring after the first bloom has ended.
- Do not plant lilacs in wet soils. They require soil that drains well to be at their best and healthiest.
- Why prune in late spring right after the spring bloom has ended? This is the preferred time to prune these plants to avoid cutting off any flower buds. If you prune any other time of the year, you risk losing the next bloom.
- Be sure to use a balanced fertilizer. Too much Nitrogen can reduce or even eliminate blooming. Don’t over-fertilize lilacs. Only use the recommended amount or less.
- Why can’t I grow lilacs in a warmer climate? Lilacs must have a cold period to develop flower buds.
