New seedlings

Herbstein, Germany(Zone 5a)

The nicely shaped flowers of Souvenir d'Herta Blin and this unnamed sibling appear in large flushes. The color changes from a citron-yellow into a bright golden-yellow within one day.

Doris, it is a very beautiful double Pink. :-) Congratulation for this nice cultivar.

Lovely flower, Monika....

Just saw THE will make very fascinating reading with yourself and Alistair combining your knowledge and I'm sure even though Adolpho Holguin isn't a name that's familiar to me, he is obviously someone who's opinion you respect, so we can look forward to the definitive book on Brugmansias.

So glad that you have decided on that lovely painting for the cover.
It's been a lot of work so you all deserve success with it....good luck.

Monica is this a new book, I have your book I purchased (german, and english translation) about 8 years ago, it was very helpful when I first started with Bugs.

Herbstein, Germany(Zone 5a)

Doris, it is a new book and will be published by Kewbooks and the University of Chicago Press. It has more than 400 pages and lots of pictures.

Thank you Monika.

Brooklyn, NY(Zone 7b)

Well... Monica.. is it out yet... please post the name of the book.. and it's release date... I searched about some and couldn't find it yet.. Years ago I got a signed copy of your first book.. I believe it was from a breeder here.. she was relaying them to folks here... unfortunately I loaned out that copy to someone that didn't return it.. will you be doing something similar this time or will it be carried in the major retailers.. like amazon..
I for one am looking foward to reading it...

Herbstein, Germany(Zone 5a)

Gordon, the book is in english and will be distributed by the Royal Horticultural Gardens of Kew - The release date is probably in April/May. The title is: Huanduj - Brugmansia and you will find information in Google.

Clifton Springs, Australia

Alistair has assured us that this will be the cover..
The Chinese publishing site was trying a few different ones out...

Hi Monika,
This is a very lovely brugmansia. Can I ask the cross? Love the colour and form.
Thanks. It's good to see you posting again :)

Nice to see some of your lovely blooms here again.

Monika, that is a very interesting color shade.Great job.

It looks a lot like 'Miss October'.

Herbstein, Germany(Zone 5a)

Thanks again for all of your nice comments.

There is perhaps a small similarity with the flowers of Miss October but the shape of the calyx is a different one. While the calyx of the Miss October flowers are rather narrow have all four of these seedlings a inflated calyx.

Walzertraum is a very nice double and has several siblings in Australia

Beautiful form ! Love the way your flowers hold there shape tight thanks for sharing

Coal Center, PA(Zone 6a)

Thanks for that explanation. I remember you lost 'Miss October', so I wondered.

The gene pool only goes so far. At some point a lot of brugs have started looking not much different from others.
As we go and with so may hybridizing now, it will be get more and more difficult to breed something all its own.
