Bloomerang Dark Purple Lilac Tree | Syringa x 'SMSJBP7'
Darker flowers than the original Bloomerang® lilac - and an improved production plant to boot. Bloomerang® Dark Purple lilac is a bolder, bigger version of the original in every way. Blooms are a very deep purple, particularly in bud. Growers as far south as the Carolinas have reported excellent success in production with this selection.
It's the next big thing for Bloomerang! Dark Purple is a bigger plant with larger, more rounded inflorescenses. It's very showy in spring, and continues to amaze with fragrant blooms from mid-summer to frost. This is a strong grower, and will add beauty and fragrance to gardens from spring to fall. Perfect as a stand alone specimen or stunning when grouped to form a border planting, this selection is a butterfly magnet and is deer resistant. A light trim directly after spring bloom will greatly enhance this plant's summer and fall blooming prowess.
