Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral gzodik On Oct 27, 2012, gzodik from Fort Collins, CO wrote:

We've had a couple of them for three years. A healthy shrub here in zone 5b (Northern Colorado), but not especially attractive. The blooms are hardly noticeable, even in spring, and the summer blooms are negligible. We're going to replace them.

Not only was this still blooming in September - it still had fragrance! I grew another rebloomer (josie?) and it just didn't have the quality of reblooms Bloomerang has.

Despite official designation as a Zone 7 limit, it has done well for me in a large pot. Placed where it receives morning and limited afternoon sun. Purchased last spring, very limited blooming last year, but put on a good spring show. Much heavier bloomer than Persian Lilac Tree. Now to see if it will rebloom in our Dallas, TX heat! FYI, I keep it well watered. Branches have attractive arching habit.
