Paul, what a wonderful new crop. I think my favourites are Bonobo and Muriel. A large potful of either would make me very happy for a very long time. Thanks for showing them to us.

A stunning series Paul !!  :o :o
You seem to have been a busy boy !  ;)

My favourites are Muriel - Gorilla 1 and Chimpanzee 2, but like Eric I' d be glad to have any one of them in my collection...  :-\
Very much looking forward to a "list" of "spares" sometime in future ??  :D :D

Thanks for comments everyone, I'm glad you like these plants. I also know that showing people new plants can create a demand for them that cannot be met. I have perhaps 2 or at the most 3 bulbs of each of the selected forms shown, so it will be a few years before I can build up enough stock to release. The alternative is to keep new hybrids "secret" and never show their pictures until I have enough to make some available. I'm hoping most of you prefer to see things as they occur, at least it shows what new things are under development that one day you will be able to get.

More positively, one or two of my earlier hybrids are coming along well. I anticipate that I will have enough of "P. Snow Monkey" to release either next season or if not then definitely the season after.

Alex, just to add that I do not have a list of bulbs for sale every year. I only do a list when I have enough spares of things - which is likely to be only every 3 or 4 years perhaps.

I forgot to add that "Muriel" is also doing well and I should be able to release some soon after Snow Monkey. These will be mixed clones, not the selected one I showed below which I currently only have the one bulb of, but they are all good plants

You and I seem to have the same taste, Maren... those were my favourites, too!
congratulations are in order for you and for Colin for these smart new flowers, Paul.

Some folks do seem not to realise that stocks can take a long time to build up, whether in Pleione or, perhaps, Erythronium, but most of us do understand those limitations and really enjoy seeing what the future may bring.... or even just delight in the photos .....  :)

Hi everyone, a few more new hybrids to share with you.

First is P. Angwatibo (P. aurita x P. Adams). Most seedlings of this cross came out a dark mauve but one or two nice reds also emerged like the one shown. Having a good orange lip makes this one especially nice I think.

Next is my re-make of P. Edgecombe (P. aurita x P. forrestii). This cross has produced some of the most interesting colours of any of the hybrids and many of the seedlings are very attractive. Sadly though, this cross is also known for often growing weakly and being particularly susceptible to “Black Pit” disease. I will enjoy it while it lasts!

P. Guenon is a cross between P. Erebus and P. Quizapu and makes some pretty colour combinations.

Next up is P. Siamang which is P. yunnanensis x P. albiflora. Nothing special colour-wise but still attractive for me.

Then comes one of my re-makes of P. Glacier Peak (P. formosana x P. grandiflora)

Finally a new autumn-flowering hybrid, P. Slender Loris. This flowers around November time and is P. Ueli Wackernagel x P. praecox

Hi Paul

Some stunners there! P. Slender Loris is very nice but my favourite has to be P. Angwatibo for the colours and the shape.

It's a shame about P. Edgecombe not growing to well but hopefully I'll have my first to flower this year, fingers crossed. Might redo the cross myself of this one as I've saved some pollen.

Hi Paul.
I agree with David - P. Angwatibo is amazing, but this clone of re-make of Edgecombe is also very pretty. I made my own re-make of Edgecombe last year, so I'm looking forward to result  ;).

Great work Paul !!!  More exquisite Pleione !

All are truly beautiful and you definitely cannot NOT like Angwatibo - however the pink/yellow combination in the petals of Guenon is particularly appealing to me !!

Thanks again for sharing these... You're making us all very anxious to see another list of "spares" appear ...  ;)

Another lot of great crosses & pics Paul. Keep them coming please.

Have you got a picture of Indri? I have this coming along from my own cross & I am eager to know what they are like.
