Angel Pelargonium "Billie Barnes"

I have very few Angel Pelargoniums just now, but of the few I do have "Billie Barnes" is one of my favourites.   Raised by Jim Zemcik, USA.    The flowers have three lower petals of white with very pale feathering, and the top petals are a deep pink lightly edged with white.    I find this has a lax growing habit, which makes it ideal for a hanging pot.

The latest magazine, Pelargonium & Geranium News, from The Pelargonium & Geranium Society, has now been published.     This edition features articles by Ursula Key-Davis of Fibrex Nurseries on growing Ivy Leaf Pelargoniums.  Another interesting article by Fibrex Nurseries is about Genetics.  Plus articles about Regal pelargonium hybridist Nicola Stemp, and a member tells us how he grows his pelargoniums 'cold'.

  1. With these flowers of geranium, their color and shape, I am charmed. :)


I would love to hear your comments about my "ramblings".
