SYRINGA is a genus of about 20 species of shrubs and small trees from Southeast Europe to East Asia. They are grown for the showy fragrant flowers.
Genus name comes from the Greek word syrinx meaning tube or pipe in reference to the pith-filled but easily-hollowed stems of some genus plants.
BLOOMERANG is a reblooming dwarf lilac that matures to only 3-4’ tall. It is reportedly a cross of Syringa ‘Josee’. Purple-pink, sweetly-fragrant, single flowers arranged in dense, terminal clusters cover this shrub with a profuse bloom in late April and May with continued rebloom into August. Elliptic-ovate, dark green leaves. No fall color.
