Description

With flowers opening purple, then turning pale lavender and finally white, yesterday-today-and-tomorrow is an aptly named little shrub. The pansy-like flowers are about 2 inches across and borne in profuse clusters (cymes, actually) of up to 10 blossoms, displayed all over the plant.

October in the garden means soft shades of flowers and romantic sweet scents, and brunfelsia encapsulates all this in one good shrub: it covers itself in sweet-smelling flowers in shades of deep purple, lilac and pale white. It is these three shades of flowers carried simultaneously that led to its common name ‘Yesterday, today and tomorrow’.
