Ohh cestrum you have so many exciting things to look forward to with the Brugs ...let's hope we don't have a super drought after this "super" flood.
Right now many of mine( hybrid seedlings) have dropped most of their leaves (most plants and trees are here) due to the extended heat and hot wind.
I can see why our American friends in the hot states write off Summer in terms of Brug displays.
My hybrids have not encountered such prolonged heat before so it's a learning experience for me.
Thank goodness the polystyrene will protect the roots from boiling.
Hopefully we won't get the exteme Winter conditions that they are enduring overeas as well.
Sigh ... oh how I miss my pretty babies.
Dreamtime to the right ...lost the buds to hail and now to heat!
