To be perfectly correct: It is "Bad Soden am Taunus". I lived there until my age of 20 and Christoph and Ludwig Weigand are among my forefathers. Until today there is the gardener family Weigand in Bad Soden am Taunus, but they no longer breed roses nor even cultivate old Weigand roses.

There is a scan of a local newspaper page (year 1936), giving informations in german language about the history of the Weigand gardener family from 1836 to 1936. I hope it can be read.

Hi HMFers,

I think that all roses that are attributed to Christoph Weigang actually "belong" to his son Ludwig. Christoph Weigand died in 1909. In 1904 already Ludwig took over the nursery. There are no references to be found that Christoph actually bred roses, only Ludwig started to breed as a hobby. The main occupation of the Weigand nursery, however, stayed the growing and selling of flowers.

Yes, most all of these roses are after his death. Can you provide a reference we can cite regarding Christoph Weigand's history. Thank you.

The contemporary references seem to refer to Christoph Weigand as the breeder of the wichurana hybrids. These were all commercialized until 1911. The later roses are HTs, HPs etc which would be Ludwig Weigand's field.
There is an article in the Rosenzeitung 1904, p. 106, of which I see only a fragment, which will tell us more.

It has to be "Bad Soden in Taunus". Bad Soden is a famous spa within in the rolling slopes of the Taunus mountains.
