Last Bloom



My repeat blooming lilac is in the throes of last bloom. I’m always pleasantly surprised when this shrub blossoms so late into the fall, it’s faint scent mixing with the dusky smell of autumn leaves and spicy chrysanthemums.

    • Thanks! I tried this variety of lilac on whim and I’ve been pleasantly surprised. It took a season or two before it started reblooming, but it’s put on a nice display ever since. It takes well to some serious cutting back, too. Can’t find a thing to dislike about it yet! Give it a shot if you can find one! (They’re usually named “Boomerang” or something like that!)
