This special lilac is a result of a successful breeding programme aimed at inventing a lilac plant that will flower for a long time and will repeat flowering. This breeding project was started by Timothy D.Wood from Spring Meadow Nursery in Michigan, USA, and in 2004 he introduced his first hybrid lilac plant called Penda. Penda became one of the parents for the consequent varieties which rose from this programme in 2006, and are today marketed under trade name BLOOMERANG®. Dark Purple is one of them and its patent was issued in 2016 (PP26549P2).

BLOOMERANG® Dark Purple is a hybrid lilac with dark lilac pink to light purple flowers and dark purple buds. They are tubular and composed in lose erect racemes, and open from mid May until early June and re-bloom from mid July until late summer. They bear a lovely fragrance which is different to common lilac flowering in early May.

It forms a bushy shrub about 2m tall and a little over 2m wide. It can be placed among smaller plants as a small flowering specimen, or used in green hedges among shrubs of different leaf shapes and colours. If you purchase a good looking plant you probably won't need to prune it ever, otherwise you can prune it just after flowering (in June) in order to encourage formation of a good framework. If you need to rejuvenate it, do so before flowering and fertilize it after.

Lilacs can be grown in many soil types. For best result use reasonably fertile, moist but well-drained soil, preferably neutral or alkaline. Full sun is essential for profuse flowering but part shade will be tolerated with slightly fewer flowers. Fully hardy to min. -34°C (USDA zone 4) and suitable for outdoor pots.
