How did I not know this forum existed? Been perusing page 1. I can see a lot of beauties already! Drooling I am so limited with my sun/part sun. But I might have to find room for one more brug.

A very mild winter (did not die back this year) early feeding, and good rains helped my trees give me the oohs and aaahs I've always wanted. And the scent! snifffffffff- breath in! I know you all know what I'm talking about. These are NOIDS I got from a neighbor but I am happy with them. I started them in a pot then put them in to the ground. They get some strong sun for a couple hours. The branches must have rooted themselves because there are 6 trees in this space. Pix coming in the next post.

They look great, Cheryl. I have a NOID that must be related to yours. Creamy white buds, the flowers open white then turn pink, right? Do your flowers close halfway during the day then flare wide open at night too? Mine has a bloom cycle of about a month all through the warm weather. It bloomed all winter this year, too.

Yes, but the buds are actually yellow, opening at night as white, turning pink in the day. They do do the droop thing in the day as pinks and they grow out instead of downward trumpets like i see a lot of brugs.

I have a couple with flowers that hang straight down, and one more white one that has outward facing flowers. Shrug!

I planted another pink and yellow NOID together in early spring. They are young but doing well. I wish i had a sunnier place for the yellow. If the colors don't blend I think the pink and yellow together would look nice.

It sort of depends on what part of the plant your cuttings came from, Jeff. If you started any cuttings that came from above the Y, they will bush out and bloom sooner than the other. The very first cuttings I got, one was from above the Y, grew from 10in. to a 4ft.X4ft. shrub in one summer and bloomed 3 times that first year. The way to know is to examine the leaves carefully. If they are assymetrical where they join the stem, you have hopes of flowers sooner.

I've had cuttings bloom while they were still in the water. Truth be told, I leave cuttings in water a lot longer than I should sometimes . . Whistling

Cheryl, here are my big pink, and yellow Charles Grimaldi blooming together. They used to live inside my pool cage but just got way too big.

Elaine when you say assymetrical leaves do you mean one side of the leaf being shorter than the other side where it meets the steam? I have several of those...

Yes, that's a very good description, Jeff. Once you see those assymetrical leaves you should be seeing buds soon.

Just to be clear, left one is what I'm calling symmetrical, right one is assymetrical or uneven.
