Misty pink is blooming
I am terrible. I should have been posting about these when they first started dropping. Noooo-not me I just keep putting it off.
This is an Adora. i left her in the ground and she came back to give me these beautiful blooms...
Monster has been in ground here in Georgia for 3 years now. The tree is not tall but it is absolutely covered in buds....
Delta Dawn is also blooming. The smells at night are wonderful. Best time to go for a walk in the yard....
Serendipity is in a pot. She is starting to set out buds too .

Hi, Charleeen. Your blooms are beautiful. I planted all of mine in the ground, but the labels have disappeared. I'll recognize Kong, monster white and Jean Pasko, but not the others.

Great blooms Charleen.I wonder why more people don't grow Adora and Delta Dawn.The bloom sizes are incredible.When people say dinner plate size they aren't exaggerating.

I have some that have lost their labels too, Deebie. but am so eager to see what they are. I love brug blooming time. My Monster has no label but I know where it is and it is a very good plant to come back and bloom. I love the bright colored ones but Monster makes me love it with it's durability and blooms...
Delta dawn is a beautiful color Bubbles. i need to cut it and straighten it up, one limb is leaning so bad I thought it was the Adora til I saw the color of the bloom. I believe it has been around, just not mentioned a lot....When your plants bloom please post pictures. Even just the plants. I have Brug site but just sloppy about not showing. I will try to be better... Here is Adora plant before she opened her blooms.


I took these to show girls on Facebook the difference to what a Y is. The first is where it is just cut and stems grow up, the last two are Y's and the plants are just beautiful...

that is so true. Humongeous blooms on bot those brugs. How are you doing JT.? You need to come up here and "boot my rump" for not showing more plants and talking about them... We have been getting some wonderful rains this year and that has helped a lot.

The top of Adora was broken, so I just stuck it in a clay pot and forgot about it. Noticed the buds beginning to bloom, took a pic, and waited until the next day to see them fully opened. They shriveled up instead. I think the sun got them. I have a fairly shaded backyard, except for a sliver of western sun that comes through the gate in the afternoon. It's also 99/100° here now.
There's another broken limb behind the big one. I'm going to see if it does the same thing. I hope it's not some kind of virus!

Those are just beautiful photos of gorgeous brugs. I'm anxious to see your V. Peach bloom. I have one, but it hasn't bloomed in years.
