Foreword and explanations Detlef Metzing

The drawings in the Blühende Kakteen volume, which are impressive due to their rich colors and detailed depiction, show the diversity and beauty of this plant species, which is becoming increasingly popular in Germany. Cacti have long ceased to be a spinning mill of quirky plant nerds: Cactus friends can now be found in urban backyard windows as well as in rural cottage gardens.
The cacti illustrated in this volume, drawn by Toni Gürke, are a very special treasure due to their wealth of detail. Gürke was able to draw the cacti with a precision that a photograph cannot convey.
Our volume shows all 180 plates of this impressive work. With a competent foreword, the cacti expert and publisher of this volume, Dr. Detlev Metzing in the book. His additions bring the original text into the 21st century. The ultimate volume for all cactus enthusiasts.
