No matter where you want to add a splash of purple, the Reblooming Lilac Tree is adaptable and requires minimal upkeep. Order yours today and enjoy a symphony of scents and color for three seasons every year.
First, find an area with full sun and well-drained soil. Any area that receives about 6 to 8 hours of sunlight should suffice. Once you’ve selected a location, dig a hole that’s around twice the size of your tree’s root ball. Then, place the tree, tamp down the soil and water to settle the roots.
The Bloomerang Lilac Trees is fairly drought tolerant once established, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule before then. We recommend watering about once weekly for best results. If you’re not sure when to water, check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water.
Only fertilize your Bloomerang after it starts blooming, preferably with a well-balanced fertilizer once or twice yearly.
Lightly prune your Bloomerang after it starts blooming for sizing and shaping purposes. To encourage a stronger root system, you may pick off the faded blooms – this allows your tree to focus on establishing its roots.
