For some reason Snowbank will only bloom during the winter for me. If I didn't like the foliage I'd trash it. During the summer the foliage is full and beautiful but looks like crap over the winter. Arborea also only blooms during the winter for me but that's a cold group variety. I don't know why Snowbank blooms when it does. The foliage is sparse and crinkled over the winter. It doesn't have mites but does harbor some aphids, along with almost everything else in the garage. The flowers aren't anything special. I might just start letting it go dormant and give up on blooms. I like the foliage enough to keep it even without flowers. I can't wait until it's warm enough to get everything back outside!

This is what the foliage looks like during the summer (same plant).

A native orchid, Eulophia graminea, that I found in FL in Jan sent up 3 spikes.

Hi Karyn,
I found 4 stores that sell 'Snowbank' but I will not post them here because of the patent thing or at least not until I have one. The only one of the variegated brugs that I don't have. I have them just for the foliage also. Blooms would be a plus.

Jerry what other variegated varieties do you have? There's quite a few.

Love the look of Snowbanks leaves Karyn. Mine croaked this pass summer, but eventually will get another. Right now I am mostly concentrating in growing veggies.

Jerry, what do you mean "the common ones"! Those are all great variegated brugs!

Jerry I assume the regular sources. Most of mine were given to me by friends or through trades.
