Angels are one topic that I have researched thoroughly and understand, unlike
computers which can leave me in an undignified stupor when they won't
The Langley Smith angels were a cross between a regal and a crispum type
scented. No P. grossularioides involved that I have ever found mentioned by
anyone but Feltwell. I don't know where he got his information. Most of the
existing angels can be traced back to one or the other of his angels. They
are definitely prolific little plants, almost as bad as the scenteds for
crossing easily and making record keeping difficult.
Jay Kapac is the hybridizer who is crossing species into the angel mix, and
he's not using P. grossularioides. He's trying for true red, green and black
flowers. So far, he's achieved a cherry red, apricot and deep salmon that
I've seen. There might be different colors in the last 2 years of seedlings
that I haven't seen.
