I received this brug as a 6" stick in October of 2008. This is the first time it has bloomed. First day it was white, then salmon for three days before it closed on the fourth day. I had given up on it. Notice how long the flower stem is. I'd never seen one that long on a brug before.

I mean the peduncle from the main stem to the flower is unusually long. We've had drought condition here so I wondered if that had something to do with it struggling to produce one flower. I haven't seen that on any other brugs in my garden.

I have some rooted brug cuttings that I keep in "the hospital" at the back corner of the garden. I just keep them going in pots. We don't have good soil. I'm looking forward to El NiƱo helping me to keep them watered until it gets cold. Then I'll shelter them and hope for spring to see some blooms. I can be very patient!

I happened to find the photo of the cuttings I received from Dollie in Louisiana. It was October 5, 2008. I was fairly new to brugs and thought they'd all be blooming by spring of 2009. Whistling Half of them are either gone, or have lost the labels.
