Bonne Fête à toutes les Mamans

On the "Mother's Day" I'm posting some fragrant flowers in my Mom's garden.Brunfelsia magnifica ( Yesterday-Today-Tomorrow)These fragrant flowers start dark purle then fade to lavender & then to white.So they are commonly called " Yesterday-Today-Tomorrow ".Brunfelsia americana (Lady of the Night)These creamy white  flowers are extremely fragrant at night. So they are commonly called " Lady of the Night".Both these plants are propagated by cuttings.My Mom is blessed with gifted green fingers. ie "La Main Verte"
