This is the best brug I am currently growing. I have over 300, so that is saying alot. She is huge with incredible tendrils. Her shape is perfect. Her color got darker for me than most pinks in my low humidity. I LOVE her. Seeding grown by Tracey Plunk for hybridizer Susie French!

The original mother plant is a 14 ft natural standard, and one of my personal favorites. The bloom can reach up to 17" and turns a deep rose color, in full sun. Hybrid by Susie French.
