As some of you know I planted my first brugs from cuttings from Kasha77 this spring.

Our spring remained cold and wet into early July so growth was poor. Four of the eight survived the weather and my ignorance however.

These shot up in August and are now forming buds...pictures will be forthcoming if they bloom before I have to start winter-prepping the bed

Vissara-
Sorry you had a rough start this spring- I think all of our brugs have suffered this growing season. Just now my beauties are turning a luscious dark green and are on their second flush of flowers. My brugs languished in the 90 - 105 temps all summer, with very little rain fall, and what made it worse- I didn't have any mulch that would keep their roots cool and conserve moisture and hand watering. I have learned more from my mistakes than anything else! :)Please share your photos with us and take heart- next year will be better as your brugs grow bigger and stronger. They will be able to withstand adverse conditions much better than when they were small. We'd love to see some photos! :)

ok, photos of plants that aren't blooming yet. And I am certainly not blaming the plants pretty well everything underperformed this year (making it a great choice for starting a tropical-themed bed!)

I have no idea why that one in the 2nd picture decided to grow sideways out over the patio instead of up. It didn't get knocked over or anything and has the same sun exposure as the others.
