Mmmmmmmmmm smells so good in the evening right now and should last another week.

French Canadian: the cherry red is not the true colour, it is more of a deep muted pink, very difficult to photograph truly in any light....

Axel Rose: green on green variegation and peachy toned flowers....

Exotica: a brute to root cuttings from but a graceful, floriferous bloomer that has flush after flush.

Wow! I'm still a tendril freak...even tho French Canadian isn't as vivid as the photo makes her look, she'd be welcome in my garden any time! I love that flower form. Thanks for sharing, RA.

I have this year's first bloom nearly open on Northern Peaks...longest tendrils of any brug I've seen in person. The color is a nice soft pink in my climate...but with tendrils like that, I don't care what color it is!

Thank you. Carrie,Flushes always seem slowed when the daytime but more importantly, the night time heat remains high I find. These buds seemed to take forever to develop and we have had warm nights here this summer too.
As you can see, the Versicolors LOVE the heat and Exotica has 3" long buds already towards Exotica's next flush. On the other hand, the one I never named that has Aurea in it is showing Spidermite damage in the crown I see, I better get after that if I want to see any more blooms from her. She is just starting a small flush today.

Exoctica is one of my favorites that you have............I like her form and the way her blooms wrap around her..........my Dr. Seuss blooms for me in much the same fashion. Harlot does as well.

I like the vertical drop of the Versi blooms too, that being said I also like the Aurea, ( almost horizontal)outward facing blooms too.
Oh heck, I like any Brug bloom LOL!

They all have been back at it for 2-3 days, it was a very short time span with no blooms, maybe a week at the most.

Most of mine have dropped their buds before they open due to the excessive heat. The only real flushes have been from Dr. Seuss and Golfito ....both of these seem to be heat loving brugs.
