Can I Grow Bloomerang Lilac In A Container

I just bought my first Bloomerang Lilac bush and was wondering if this beauty can be planted in a container vs. the ground. I have several cedar 2'x4'x14" containers and was hoping to make a brand new one for my Lilac. I am worried about not having any blooms appear as well as not having enough room for the roots to grow. Would it be possible to have this bush planted in a container?? Any suggestions??

Answer #1 ·'s Answer · Hi KT,

Our nursery just started carrying the Bloomerang Lilac this Spring (2012). I planted one in my landscape and it's doing very well so far. Bloomed heavily in spring and is now starting to bloom again. So far so good with the repeat flowering. Since I'm in mid-Georgia, and Lilacs typically like life a little on the cooler side, I planted mine where it will receive some shade in the mid-afternoon on.

Didn't think about growing it in containers but there are pictures all over the Internet showing it growing in them. It's a smaller grower so should do fine as long as the container is 18 to 24 inches in diameter with a 15 inch depth or so. The larger the better if you plan to keep them in the containers long term. Bloomerang grows 4 to 6 feet tall with an equal spread but probably smaller in containers.

Hope this info helped. Let me know if you have any further questions.
