|Took a pic of my big brugs when they were blooming about a week ago. They are outside our bedroom windows..........oh, it smells so wonderful when I go to bed at night. Well, not now, since they are done............LOL Also one of my hanging basket brug. |

|Anna, They are looking great! Was your weather cool enough this summer for them to bloom? I'm enjoying all the gorgeous Brug photos everyone has been posting.|
We had over 80 days of 100º+ weather in addition to the worst ever single year drought and if my Brugs didn't die, they went dormant.

|It was pretty hot during july...........usually we get that stuff in August, but Aug. was pretty decent. They did pretty good, actually better than I was expecting with all the heat. But, it wasn't as hot as what you are. I've noticed that "Wretched Mess" seems to bloom much better in the greenhouse...........so I believe that it doesn't like hot weather at all. I keep the g'house heater set at 58. Had lovely blooms about Feb.|

|Gordon, yes they are the same in that photo that are blooming. The ones that aren't are different. The big ones are the originals I bought in 2004 (those are the 3 huge ones) and I took some cuttings off of them..........I have too many of the peach. LOL Actually, when I purchased them, the stated color on the little box was pink, orange, and white. Hah...........joke was on me. I'd love to have a really true orange; I think someone may be sending me a cutting.|
The basket one is not the same, I got it from Logees a year ago and it has done beautifully. Now I can't remember if it was Inca Sun or Summer's Dream...........I think they are both basket brugs, but sieve-brain can't remember. I'd like another basket one, as I have another 24 inch basket that is begging me for a brug.
