I have had this one several years and it has never had a name but it is a reliable bloomer. Usually several times a year.

Gorgeous! I have mine outside, but no blooms so far this summer. It may be too hot for them right now. Our humidity is only 10% and temps are near 100F.

I've had that same pink one with outward facing blooms for years, too. Sorry, not sure of the name, either. It sure is hardy and disease resistant. Very reliable bloomer. I think my garden "helper" may have ripped it out by mistake this spring, because it is now MIA.

I've had several named hybrids that have come and gone in my garden, not very durable. Charles Grimaldi (yellow) and New Orleans Lady (pale pink double) have both croaked on me. One that has persisted is Milk 'n Honey, a large pendant white one.

Elaine It is very hardy and disease free. Originally it was grown from seeds given to me by a local. When I take cuttings and put them in the greenhouse they are white fly magnets though. The only other one I grow is Peaches and Cream which is variegated. I did buy one called Angels Flight earlier this year which is also variegated but it never did well and eventually croaked.

I'm with you, just bought a start of 'Maya' this spring, and it is struggling to stay alive.

My brugs were always magnets for spider mites, too. I finally grew them inside my pool cage with my orchids, where they got sprayed more regularly with spinosad insecticide, which seemed to have shut down the insect problems nicely.
