Donner chose this one as best. I agree.....
They grow in the shape of a beach umbrella. Rounded and full of pendulous blooms.
Once more--look here.....I did save the mama plant, cut back, and then just took it
outside in the spring and it went "poof!"...
This is from Sept. 2013
Here are some close-ups.
Sept. 009 was the year my MAYA brug went berserk. This was her 4th flush for the summer. Never ended!!!....it just bloomed and bloomed--and got BIGGER AND BIGGER.
When it reached this size--I called out local Arboretum and begged them, for 2 weeks--
to come and get it. They finally sent the City's Panel-van and it barely fit in there....
Here are some pictures of Maya's blooms. Note that the leaves of the maya are variegated.
Here is what I did to the maya the year before it grew like a monster.
I had to cut it back so i could bring it into my basement. I hated to do it--as
the plant was still blooming....It was a real carnage!!!! Took real guts to cut it back. :sad:
