When you think of lilac, summer probably isn’t the season that comes to mind; after all, most lilacs bloom in spring. If you’re familiar with the Bloomerang® series from Proven Winners® ColorChoice®, you may know that a reblooming lilac can give you those same fragrant blooms in summer too. I’ve told you about Bloomerang® Dark Purple lilac before, but today I want to introduce you to our latest addition to the series: Bloomerang® Purpink™ lilac.
It’s Purple. No, it’s Pink. It’s Purpink™!
We’ll leave it up to you to decide what color you think this lilac is because we truly can’t decide. Sometimes the flowers look purple, and other times, they look pink. Either way, this lilac blooms like crazy! The number of blooms this shrub produces is incredible.
Bloomerang® Purpink™ has a nice midsize habit that is perfect for gardens at 3-5′ tall and 2-3′ wide It is hardy in USDA 3-7.
Need more reasons to love Bloomerang® Purpink™? Not only do pollinators love this plant, but it is also deer and disease resistant.
