Marantha Nursery in Texas? (+ question about brug scents)

I was wondering about the quality of their service and the health of their plants. Also, I'm looking at Dr Seuss and Charles Grimaldi, based on the reputations of their scents, however there are varieties that Marantha makes sound even more based on their descriptions on their website:

Goldtraum
Miami Orange Glow
Sunray

I'm also looking at Xena for the pink flowers. How fragrant is Xena compared to Dr Suess & Charles and the others?

I think that they yellows/oranges have it for top fragrance, just my opinion. I don't know about GT, MOG or SR. I also have Xena. Nice spicy fragrance, not as overpowering as Dr S and CG.

I gave my sister a brug cutting ( yellow, unknown ) she stuck it in water and in a month bloomed ! Her husband got her out of bed the other night because he thought the cat peed in his office..... she said "I smell flowers !"..... yep the burg .

I have Xena, Dr Seuss and Charles Grimaldi but my Xena hasn't bloomed yet. I put it inground and it hasn't grown as well as the potted ones.
Dr Seuss and Charles Grimaldi have bloomed off and on all summer and I love the fragrance.
I'm not familiar with the others or the nursery.

I have not been to the nursery, but have talked with the owner, and believe him to be an honest and fair nurseryman. If you are asking if it is safe to order brugs from this nursery, guess my answer would be YES.

Ditto, with carrie. I have talked with him several times on the phone. He isn't open to the public, but will open for a visit by appointment. He seems to be very honest and trustworthy.

Also, the spelling of the name of the nursery is Maranatha. This is what is on his website.

Maranatha" literally means "Come, O Lord ...", and today is commonly used to mean "Jesus is coming again" ... my Christian faith tells me He will come again, in glory, and as King.

I have visited with Steve at his nursery (it's just down the road from me - dangerous!) and learned a lot. He showed me how he propagates them, as well as his set-up (greenhouse) for the winter.

He is very careful with his plants. If one doesn't appear to be what he purchased/traded when blooming, he considers it a NOID and will assign an ID for his tracking. He always sends out the best plants with a mail order, and he steered me away from ones that might not perform for me.
