I'm going to piggyback this thread to also express my thanks to Lulu for the Brug cuttings she sent me. All survived their first year, and also survived the basement in the winter, and are all blooming their beautiful heads off. They are always hungry and thirsty, but as long as they're fed and watered they bloom their beautiful heads off! Gorgeous. I have six blooming at the moment, and the scent in the evening is unbelievable.

I have thanked Lulu personally but would also like to say that Lulu's gift of 14 Brug stems have now become 13 beautiful plants (1 did'nt make it) i put some in the ground and some in pots, the largest is about 5ft tall and has 6 beautiful flowers, also one of the potted Brugs has 4 flowers.

Again thanks Lulu

WOWZERS!!! That Brug is so beautiful!! What Zone are you in? I think I saw that they need Zone 7 (touchy) - sadly we are Zone 6. I don't think my husband would welcome more plants over-wintering in his workshop (well my half of it ;-) I love the colour of the Pickering Salmon. Gorgeous!
Gardening requires a lot of water - most of it in the form of perspiration.

I'm in Toronto, Zone 6 i think. The first flush had over 20 blooms, second one had maybe 40-50 blooms. I planted this particular one in the ground. It's still blooming & more buds are forming. Love the smell at night!
