B. 'Peggy's Pet'
by Peggy Fratus
In 1996, I crossed B. 'My Special Angel' with 'Texas Teasipper'. The resulting cane bloomed in 1997 with pink flowers.
Charles Jaros obtained one of the plants at an auction at our Palm Beaches Branch in 1997. He liked it well enough to want to enter it into New Introductions at the ABS Convention in Atlanta in 1998, and so it was named B. 'Peggy's Pet.
Charles later gave it to Harmony Foliage for introduction into the trade. It was used as centerpieces at the Winter board Meeting in Atlanta in February 2001.
I am not sure who is growing the plant at the present time, but I do know that Mary Bucholtz has one in Jacksonville, FL, as well as Carol Notaras in San Francisco, CA.
B. 'Peggy's Pet' shows its B maculata heritage.
