Because it blooms from spring until fall, this lilac is perfect for foundation plantings, the herbaceous border and as a specimen plant.
Bloomerang purple lilac (Syringa x purple ‘Penda’)
h 1.5 m, Zone 3
A revolution in lilac breeding, Bloomerang first puts on a show of fragrant, lavender-blue flowers in spring, then continues to bloom sporadically all summer long, only to produce a second glut of flowers in autumn. Regular deadheading will encourage more blooms on these compact, well-branched shrubs. Introduced by Spring Meadow Nursery.
