Wednesday’s Flower: Brunfelsia

Brunfelsia, Yesterday-Today-Tomorrow, Kiss Me Quick

This shrub has flowers that start out white, become mauve, and then purple.

I admit that I did not know this shrub’s real name is Brunfelsia, nor that it has the common name of Kiss Me Quick. The genus name Brunfelsia comes from a 16th century German monk, Otto Brunfels. Amazing what you find via Google! I only know it as the Yesterday Today and Tomorrow plant. This shrub has flowers that start out white, become mauve, and then purple, with a lovely light scent. They make dense, eye-catching hedges.
