I've crossed this brug; parentage unknown. It must have been a yellow blooming brug crossed with a pink one. The resultant offspring's flower? A mixture of pink and yellow. I'm delighted with the result. Look;
I brought the small plant indoor tonight and the fragrant is oh so beautiful!
It is very beautiful, So happy for you. I know they have a wonderful fragrance, I had a pink one last year that was out of this world. But after it started to going good again in early spring, somethink went wrong and it died. Hopeing to try once more this next year. Congrat on a job well done.
Thanks TXtea, wishing you luck of finding one that you really enjoy. Having being indoor and out of direct scortching sun light this time of year. The blooms will last much longer, and we can enjoy their wonderful fragrant is a bonus.
Kyle, you're absolutely right! Here is the current blooms. It's all depends on the environment, and the temp. I guess? I kept the plant on the back porch after the last flush of blooms. I just now brought it back indoor to enjoy this last flush of blooms for the season.
MyRee, no the color doesn't seem to be more intense. I've several that are being outdoor seem to 'palen' as the cooler temp. is setting in. I think the warmer temp. intensifies the coloring? I could be wrong. Here is a hybrid 'Miss Emily Mckinzie' blooming this morning.
The second pix is the same cultivar that bloomed back in Aug. 26th.
Thanks Cody, I double checked the buds this morning. Yes, definately those are buds. I'm delighted. Brugs that are grown outdoor in the neighborhood already put out blooms this time of year. I was late bringing my containers brug outside this year. So seeing them progress along, wee bit late, that's okay though. How are you doing? When you get ready to rebuild the garden, drop me a note. I'll be happy to send you some starts.
Kim what counts is that you have blooms now.I have been good.Just tired,i dog sit for my sister at her house the last two days.All he wanted t do is bark.Thank you,that is very kind of you.I will let you know,when i do.I hope you are doing good as well?
I've been doing well, thanks. Hope the pet is more co-operative, and be more loving. My neighbors' two dogs that we're looking after this weekend. They're so very sweet, just wanted to be petted and loved on, but no barking. We fed them this evening, and closed the gate and kept them inside. They have their own dog house in the yard, and they do well with it until we come back and visit with them in the morning.
The brugs I've one bud on my seedling, and one on 'Miss Emily Mckenzie' a named cultivar. I'm watching a double white brug that a friend from NY has given me several years past, hope that brug will bloom this summer as well.
Kim,you are very welcome.I did love on the dog.He stayed in my lap or above my head.He is just a spoiled dog that was looking for his mom.He kept me up at night with his barking.Everything i would get to sleep,he would bark and run to the livingroom.He did not settle down until early morning.So i will sleep like a baby tonight,because i am back at my house.
The 'seedling' is finally showing off her beauty. The FOS (first of the season) bloom is exactly like the very first one the plant made last year. The only thing is, I've transplanted the 3-4' plant from a small container into a 5-gallon one. It's much to too large to move indoor this year.
Lol, you are so nice, but there is an existing one by that name ...besides, one of the great thrills is naming your very own Brug. Check out the names already taken though there are so many already taken.
What about Lily's Love or something like that ?
Chrissy, I've thought about this seedling for a long while. I finally decided I've given it a nick-name without actually passing out cigars...more on that later.
1. "Cory" is the name! Yes, it's one and the same flower yesterday just before sunset.
2,3, and 4 is 'Cory' this morning.
5th pix are just the complimentary flowers blooming nearby. Those are Jatropha and Duranta blooms. All of which are also tender perennials.
