Origin of Name

Guy Wilson, in the 1961 RHS Yearbook, was talking about seedlings that have flowered once and have been consigned to the “mixed” bulbs,  . . .but perhaps the next year they may be better.  “The other beauty is a thing that was ‘found in mixed’ in season 1958.  There is only one plant that this year gave four angelic flowers, so lovely that I, there and then, named it ‘Angel’.
