Pink Brug bloom emerging green?

pelagikos14(7)September 1, 2010

Hey ya'll. I have my 1st brug bloom emerging. I'm new to this plant this year & I'm confused! The bloom is coming out lemon-lime green.... It was marked pink. I understand that the blooms can & do change color. But was curious to see if any of you long-timers could tell me if this looks like a possible 'pink', OR is it just too early to know?

Thanks so much!

Hi Holly-
For some reason I couldn't access your photo.
But it sounds like your flower is normal to me. Mine do that too, then the next few days they turn to their right color. I think they are beautiful at every stage. Below are a few photos to show you what I mean- this is a young Dola bloom- I can't find a mature blossom photo at this time to show you how dark it gets.I do have a photo of it in a former post. Hope that helps!

That's not unusual at all. It might be fully open with the greenish color for a day before it starts pinking up. Congrats on your 1st bloom.

Hey Kasha! I'm reposting the pic. Thank you for the photos. The first one is almost identical to the color I described. That is reassuring to me. I also like all the colors in brugmansias I've see, but wanted a pink. ;) You're pics are beautiful! And Karyn, thanks again for your info. I love GW! Such nice, helpful people here! :D

It opened tonight!!! The smell is OTHERWORLDLY! I can't even begin to describe the scent, maybe lemony fading to Gardenia? I just love it.

Did it pink up? That's a nice looking yellow, I would be happy to have a plant that bloomed yellow like that.

Actually no! But it's beautiful anyway. :D I have several new blooms now & they start out the gorgeous yellow & then blush a fantastic peachy yellow that reminds me of a tequila sunrise color. Its just lovely. I have 2 rooted cuttings that I'll share if someone can tell me how to ship them.... For I haven't a clue. Lol

That's beautiful! Congratulations!
To mail out cuttings, I wrap moist paper towel around the bottom and then use plastic wrap, then you could wrap in newspaper and put in a box and get it weighed to ship priority. It's usually cheaper than the flat rate boxes from the post office, unless the contents are really heavy.

Thanks for the information Theresa! :D Glad to know it can be that simple. Now maybe I will go on over to the proper forum & list the cuttings. I also wanted to post that I may be finally able to end this thread, as I have over twenty blooms now & they are all NOT PINK, LOL! But alas I am left with a gorgeous NOID & I'm satisfied with that.

**Side note : With all these fragrant night-time blooms we had a really neat visitor last night. My husband thought it was a hummingbird, but upon research I discovered it was the LARGEST Sphinx moth I've ever seen. Just Awesome.
I will try to post pix if it returns this evening!
