First blooms for my new peach Brug

Things are kind of quiet here, I thought I'd share a picture. A third flower is opening up tonight, with 7 sides instead of 5. The first ones still look great after 5 days. I'd say it's a keeper.

Definitely "a keeper", jeromej13. Seven instead of five. Neat.

Thanks for sharing.

What a Superb Plant. I love the color. My peach one called Jean Pasco is forming the buds and are just setting there waiting for the right time I guess.
Thanks for allowing me into your garden.

Very nice, did they darken as they aged?

Hello Ruth Ann,

The flowers stay white for almost 24 hours, then the peach colour appears in patches. After a couple of days, they look more orange than peach to my eye. And the perfume is only intense the first couple of nights. There, I've said it all. I had to take off many leaves because of the darned white flies, but it shows off the flowers, so it's almost a good thing...

An update

I counted 18 flowers open tonight. I find it more generous than the other Brugs I've had. Thanks for looking!

Realizing that camera's, lighting and monitors affect how colours show up to folks, this one really looks similar to mine posted at the link below....

Did you get it from Dominion Seed House per chance?

Very pretty indeed and wish you luck with disposing of your whiteflies.

Hello Ruth Ann,

Mine was a gift, a cutting from an unnamed Peach. I think it looks a lot like a Versicolor Peach, less pink than your Exotica. I also see less flies these days, and I'll take off all the leaves before I bring it outside.

Cheers.

Yes your tree looks just like my peach versicolor which is also blooming it's head off. Very nice!
