Weather conditions here have finally come to a point where my brugs are blooming and my newest registered cultivar has begun to put on her show...It never ceases to amaze me just how beautiful these plants are...Interesting thing about this cultivar is that it seems to show a consistent ability for the blooms to mature at different rates so again i am seeing for the third year in a row the "bi-color" blooms...in reality they are just blooms that are maturing at different rates because they all wind up the same color eventually but they seem to have the consistancy of staggering the rate of bloom maturity...and it just fascinates me to have white and dark pink blooms with every flush.

Gary,
I bet she turns lots of heads with that bi-colored trait. She is beautiful. How's her fragrance?

She has the typical baby powder fragrance...sweet smelling as it moves thru the evening breezes of the fall...

are getting down into the 40's the past few nights. I think I'm gonna try to get every plant except my 1 tri-skirt that still has at least 10 buds left to open. With my back this is gonna really be a "back breaking venture" that I am not looking forward to the after effects of days in bed in pain.

I am blessed to live in a frost free zone so these coming months are my best months for blooms...to wake up on christmas and new years with blooms in the yard is a blessing that can't be described...sometimes i will spend an hour or so at night in the winter laying on the chaise lounge and taking in the fragrance of whatever brugs are in bloom at the time...living in zone 10 has it's advantages. now i have just cut back ms. fatale so that i can get her cuttings rooted and up for distribution on ebay this winter /spring...she is one that really deserves a spot in a southern garden...born and bred in the southern portions of the U.S...this is a brug that will survive the hottest conditions, where other brugs will fail...that's what i do...hybridize for those people that deal with severe heat in the southern climates...if it survives here for more than 3 years...it will survive anywhere.
