|Angel Pelargonium - Auntie Billie
"Auntie Billie" is another angel pelargonium that I find grows well in a hanging pot, having a fairly lax growing habit. The petals are a pale pink with dark red veining, almost like a blotch, on the upper two petals and the lower three having a white throat. The leaves are small and a very bright green.
Hybridised by Malcolm Harris, "Auntie Billie", was introduced in 2003.
I have been taking cuttings in the past couple of weeks. Due to family ill health, I was not able to take many in last August and September, which is when I normally take them. I have taken mainly zonals, ivy leaf and scented pelargoniums. Luckily the weather in October here in the UK has been very mild and fairly bright, and I think I will be lucky this year. So far they are all looking quite healthy. I have some in the conservatory and some in one of the greenhouses in propagators. Once I have some well rooted and potted on I will take cuttings from the Angel pelargoniums.
