We have featured the “Yesterday-today-tomorrow” Brunfelsias before, and mentioned there are two main groups of the genus. The yesterday-today-tomorrows have a pansy-like flower with a very short corolla, held closely to the stem. They change in color from purple to white over a period of a few days and then fall off the plant. Some are slightly fragrant. For the most part they come from South America; they are widely cultivated in gardens.
