Older plant. Going on 15 years old. Maybe 14-16'?

Love this! My first sighting of this plant was at the Half Moon Nursery. They had a HUGE one growing in back that was covered in big yellow blooms. I was mesmerized. I had to go visit it every year till it died in one of those bad frosts. I also grew a similar one, it would get covered in bloom.

The funny story on this is- I had it behind a rubber pond that had a leak..so that plant sent roots into the pond ( I was always topping that pond off!) I took the pond down- and the Brug nearly died on me. I guess my idea of what water it needed wasn't what it thought..So the last few weeks,I've been making a conscience effort to water it more. I see a decent bloom on it now.

Yes, they guzzle water! Beautiful!
