Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Brunfelsia pauciflora

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow Plant Features

Yesterday, today and tomorrow gets its unusual common name from the fact that its blooms open purple and change color every day depending on how long the flower has been open. The pansy-like flowers start out purple, then fade to lavender and on the third day the flower turns white. These tropical shrubs grow 4-8 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide. In the North, you can grow yesterday, today, and tomorrow as a beautiful tropical container garden plant.
