Looking good. I see you have a flower too. I got my first one just over a week ago. With this hot weather mind you, I have to water them several times a day, and give them lots of fertilizer.

Smitty: Eight blooms! Excellent. Oh my gosh, the perfume. It's amazing. Every gardener should get a whiff.

Carol: I've got one Brug I've kept going for about 4 years now. I also took cuttings from it and now have two more of that one. Lulu sent me four cuttings, (pink), which I overwintered in the basement, and they're all doing very well. From 10" cuttings the smallest one is now nearly 3' high with lots of 'Y's.

Smitty green with envy, Lulu also sent me a Brugs package i think there were 16 in total, i babied them through the winter, and they all survived, i replanted them outside once it was warm enough, unfortunately i lost one, but all the others look healthy, but absolutely no sign of flowers i have a feeling it might not be until next year.
