SOLVED: name of brugs?

Newberry, FL(Zone 8B)

this morning these blooms were all the lightest pink. not a great pic as they droop some in the mid day heat and revive again in the afternoon. they become a darker pink but still wlhite in the center with age, last 4-5 days.

Beautiful!! My Brugs have just started growing again, but I have one tiny little bud on 'Chas. Grimaldi' already!! From the pictures I have seen, yours looks like 'Insignis Pink. Here are a couple of good sites with pictures.

I have a 'Ecuador Pink' and the flowers look similar to what you have.

Tim, i think that may be it. do your flowers start out white and turn kinda pink of some tone, darker with age. and a wonderful fragrance????

Jean, what awesome sites, how have i missed those? have you ordered from them? if i were good and going to my nephew's graduation in crestview i would be right near there.... i feel an order from happy valley coming on....

No, I have not ordered from LeBonJardinier, but know they are highly recommended by other Brug lovers. I did get cuttings last spring from valleygrow and was pleased, both with the cuttings and prompt service from the owner. I too, feel an order coming on..LOL!

Arlene,

Yes, the flowers started out somewhat yellowish-white, then pink, and get darker with age, and smelled wonderful!

Sounds like Frosty Pink instead of Ecuador Pink. Logees greenhouse website has an excellent picture of Ecuador Pink. My Frosty Pink starts out yellow, turns light pink then darker and smells wonderful. Ecuador Pink isn't as fluted as that one and hangs down instead of out.

with much embarrassment, which brug is this really? in the evening when they first open they appear all white, light pink in the am and darken with age, with a darker rim on the edges...this is the one i put in the ground in june cause i couldn't keep it watered.

Arlene: I would say that is suaveolens frosty pink.

Brugcrazy, that is what i thought but late pm and early am the flowers look just like barbara V. pink. yours came off another plant, rained this afternoon, will get you pics...very similar, and i thought i saw FP in her when i mailed them to you, but the flowers look different at times and your mom gets more sun. leaves are more ruffly i think.
