The Bloomerang Dwarf Pink is the perfect way to bring color and fragrance to a planting bed, border, walkway or any other compact area. This little plant is a third the size of traditional lilacs but it is loaded with lovely pink blossoms that bloom in the spring, summer and fall. It requires full sun and needs a cold period to rest before blooming again, so it doesn’t do well in southern climates, but will thrive almost everywhere else. Like all lilacs, it requires full sun and soil that’s not too wet.
Here are three great reasons to grow Bloomerang Dwarf Pink:
Dwarf footprint fits easily into most garden spaces.
Reblooms for vibrant pink color from spring through fall.
Quite resistant to both deer and disease.

A dwarf lilac like Bloomerang Dwarf Pink offers a lot of versatility in the landscape. Plant it lining a walkway, under windows, as a low hedge, or anywhere you want color and fragrance with minimal care.
Plant only in full sun and well-drained soil; lilacs cannot tolerate soggy, wet conditions.
The rebloom of Bloomerang lilac occurs on the new growth the plant creates after its spring bloom. For the best rebloom, it’s vital that the plant grows vigorously during late spring and early summer. Do this by keeping it well-watered and mulched and in plenty of sun (six hours a day at least). If you wish to fertilize it, you may do so in early spring, once the ground has thawed, and again in late spring, after it blooms.
If you want to prune Bloomerang lilac, do so immediately after its spring bloom. Never cut it back in fall, winter, or early spring – doing so will remove the spring flower buds. It is not necessary to prune Bloomerang lilac in order for it to rebloom. However, giving it a light trim after blooming does remove the developing seed heads (they look like green bananas, and some people don’t care for the way they look on the plant), providing a neater look, and encourages more new growth for reblooming. Trimming after blooming will delay the rebloom by a few weeks compared to an untrimmed Bloomerang lilac.
Like nearly all lilacs, Bloomerang lilac actually requires a period of cold weather in order to bloom well. This is why lilacs are not typically suited to warmer climates. However, they are very, very cold tolerant and thrive in climates as cold as USDA zone 3.
The botanical name of lilac, Syringa (suh-RIN-gah), is from the Greek word syrinx, which means tube. This is because the stems of lilac contain a spongy pith which can be removed, leaving a hollow tube that has traditionally been used to create pan-pipes.

They are used to determine whether a plant is likely to be perennial in your area. If your zone is equal to or higher than the zone listed for the plant, it will be hardy for you and thrive in your climate.
