Looking for re-bloomers?
What’s better than a great plant that has beautiful blooms? One that re-blooms over and over again! Consider adding these prolific re-bloomers to your garden this year.
Enjoy the scent of lilacs for months – not weeks! This lilac blooms in spring and then after a resting period during the hottest part of summer, it blooms again with fragrant lavender flowers lasting until frost. This compact, mounded variety fits easily into any landscape, takes full sun, and works as a foundation plant, along a border or in a perennial bed. Best yet, it’s deer resistant and attracts butterflies. The blooms are great for cutting too!
Better than other azaleas; enjoy up to five months of blooms! Large flowers appear in April, then re-bloom in early July, continuing through fall until hard frost. Even high summer temperatures don’t stop this beauty from producing loads of late summer and fall flowers. The evergreen foliage is disease resistant, and maintains excellent color year-round. Flowering lasts for 4-6 weeks in spring, and then another 12-16 weeks in summer and fall. Prefers light shade, adequate moisture, and fertile well-drained soil. Part sun to dappled shade is ideal and eliminates flower scorch in full summer sun. Prune to shape and fertilize after the first major spring bloom. Group them in mass plantings; use in mixed borders, containers or as a specimen plant. Good for foundation plantings or woodland gardens.
