A very vigorous cultivar with sturdy growth habit, and large, pure white flowers with a lovely clean fragrance. As with most brugs, very easy to start from cuttings, and my first start of 'Monster White' grew from a 10in. cutting to a 5ft. shrub in less than 6 months. Be prepared to prune this one to keep it in bounds if you are growing in a container (as I do). The nematodes in our soil here in Florida just love brugs, so if planted in the ground, they last about a year. But most brugs also love to be pruned, and respond by putting on extravagant flushes of new growth and blooms. Feed brugs with soluble fertilizer, enhanced with magnesium at least once a month - about a teaspoon of Epsom salts per gallon of water seems to work great.
