Lulu your Brugs

I dont know if you remember but a few years ago you sent me a selection of Brugs, i grew them over winter and potted them up and put outside, i believe a few did have one or two flowers the first year, since then i have kept them barely alive over winter and put back outside lots of leave no flowers, this year one of them really took off and currently has 9 flower pods, cant wait to see the flowers and what colour it is, the others are still plodding along.

I have had 7 beautiful flowers so far with 2 more to come, they are a peachy colour. The plant is only about 2 feet tall, one straight stem and then the much needed branch . I have about 6 others brugs but they all just have a straight stem no branches with leaves.
I`m off to Italy and Cyprus in 10 days time so m ust remember to bring them in before we go as i`m sure we will get a frost here before we get back in 2nd week of october.

With the weather extremes we are experiencing here, south of you, you can bet your booties there will be a frost before you get back. laf

Have a great trip!

I too received several Brug cuttings from Lulu and have kept them going for several years now. I'm trying to reduce the number of plants I overwinter in the basement and this year decided to see which of the Brugs performed the best and save the best 2 or 3. This is one that I will save as it has always performed well, and this year was no exception. 'Pickering Salmon'. Doesn't get too tall and leggy and produces blooms for many many weeks. I took this picture of it yesterday, (I should have tidied it up first!), and it's still producing new flower buds. I think this one actually likes the cooler night temperatures.

Tidied-up or not Brenda, wow!, look at all those blooms!
Bet the perfumed air near it, is out of this world.
