Hi Cynthia : Thanks so much for the information. That helps a lot - so, is
it safe to assume that I would label angels as P. 'Angel Name' and leave off
any reference to the crispum, unless I have definite heritage information ?
For example, let's say I have a plant that is called 'Lucky Penny' (a
salmon/red blossom came to mind) - then I would label it as "P. 'Lucky
Penny' (angel type)" with the angel type on my label and records?
