Hi everyone, I am looking for several older kinds of brugs. Sources anyone?

Elizabeth Fitchtl, Crown of Thorns' hybridizer, said she lost her one and only plant some time ago during a freak freeze before she had had a chance to make cuttings. So Crown of Thorns is no more. She might have Rosalla. So may Fred Sommers. Try contacting them. I had it, but lost it during our worst drought ever last year.

Betty, Thanks for the info! :-) I know how that works on being the only one with a seedling...then losing it before spreading it around. :-(

And that's why plants should be shared. (At least with someone who would give them back!)
I have a lot of brugs, but never these two, or I would. Hope you find them.
