Update on '06 Seedlings

In other threads we've talked about how our seedlings from seeds shared last year performed. I finally have pics ready to show what mine are up to. As I've mentioned, winter storage in my garage wasn't highly successful this past winter...most of my brugs had trunk die-back in varying degrees, as you'll see here.

1rst pic - my 2 Frosty Pink X Unknown
2nd & 3rd pics - Mtn. Magic X Unknown
in both cases, one died back only a little...the other a lot!










next 3 pics:

one of my 3 Ecuador Pink X Peaches & Cream
this is plant #2...look at the die-back.
#1 grew tall & bloomed late last summer I dug it
and stored it in the garage...it died!
#3 grew in a pot & also appears to have died.
I have cuttings of all 3.






Suaveolens white
a good tall grower.
out of 12 seedlings, I've given away 10.




CG X Insignis Pink

You certainly have a lot of patience, Patrick. Not sure I could deal with all of the setbacks. You get a AA for effort. All this time, there have been no blooms from any of the seedlings, correct?? Maybe soon you'll see some "colorful results". Sure hope so because you deserve it.

Jarie, one of my EPxPNC seedling started blooming at the end of August last year. The other 2 from that same batch set buds, but too late to bloom. My cool climate makes them slow growers, compared to warmer parts of the country.

I believe I'll get better results by cutting off the full-length trunks & rooting them in a cool room indoors over the winter. That way I can put out already Y'd brugs in the spring. I will also try to make my garage warmer this next winter.

These are pics from 07Sept last year.

I have a feeling these will do great for you this year--they are getting good growth and look healthy---more blooms in store for you!

I bet you will find your 2 year old plants (and older)that died back on you will Y at a much lower height and flower sooner for you this year Gary. I find mine do that when I chop them back for dormancy.

Patrick, what a soft beautiful pink and I love the tendrils on that seedling. Hope it blooms as beautifully this 2nd year and warrants special recognition. Keep us posted.

Jarie, the coloring you see is early on the 2nd day & if viewed closely is more peachy than pink. The blooms matured to a soft pumpkin color. Like you, I'm anxious to see what this year's coloring & flower form will be like.

Linda, thanks for your positive thoughts.

RA, I hope I have the same experience, even tho part of me hopes for taller plants.

Patrick has more patience than I, Jarie - I would forget what I was doing in two years!! (grin) Anyway, I am glad there are "Patrick's" in this world so the rest of us can benefit from their perseverance. Way to go, Pat ------

You can say that again, Carrie. My seedlings bit the dust last summer so I have to start over in that department...if I decide to. Pollinating and shucking the pods is the easy part...from there on it's been down hill for me!! We'll see what happens this year. My biggest problem is that we're gone so much of the time and seedlings are something that is difficult to hand over to someone else.

Patrick, you're a great brug daddy! Happy Father's Day.

Patrick, even though you had some set-backs, your seedlings look great. The peach bloom looks great with all those tendrils. I know you can't wait to (finally) see all the new blooms this year. I have several seedlings from '06 that I haven't seen blooms on yet and I'm just holding my breath, waiting for them to Y...

Good luck - I hope you get at least one real beauty!
