Herbstzauber is a Monika Gottschalk creation, It has a very nice Large Golden bloom.
Cb. That is really gorgeous!Is it in a container?
Yes Maureen, This is growing in a container in a 2 gallon pot which the branch you see in bloom now was broken off the mother plant which stands 4 feet tall and wide.
I see that you are in Lakeland and it gets cold there that's why I asked.It is really gorgeous
CB...your Angels are awesome , as usual. Are there any sources for mail ordering in your area? Nurseries around
here in my little area don't carry such beauties. I want to
order a few doubles. You're so good at what you do!!
Margaret, Fred at Sommer Gardens have a large selection of
Brugs plants and cuttings. He sends out very nice plants.

I got this one last year but it has stayed small and hasn't flowered. It had some buds but they fell off.
How much if any afternoon shade do you have yours in? I am wondering if I gave mine too much shade last summer. We also had unusually wet conditions. I am considering putting it in the ground here this year.
SJN, Herbstazuber receive early morning sun until about noon
and afternoon shade the rest of the day.
Don't worry once Herbstzauber starts to take off for you it will
bring much joy with the blooms it produces. it will put you on a
show like know other brug with flush after flush so be patience
and Herbstzauber will reward you.
after Herbstzauber becomes a little larger size it will no longer
drop any buds and be caution with the fertilizer in the soil
as it will cause much bud drop on Herbstzauber at least here in my environment. I Foliar feed Herbstzauber and have found
it will take as much as I give her.
Cb Thanks for all the great tips. I am hoping for a great brug flowering season this year. We had so much rain here last summer and soooo cloudy, the flowering was not all that great but most things put on a lot of height. I will do the foliar feeding and see how she does. I think I will stick her in the ground and take a few cuttings to pot up for backups once she gets going.
Thanks for the info Cb . I didn't know about the foliar feeding. I will try the foliar feeding.
What is foliar feeding?
This explains it better than I ever could.............
