Hi Paul,
I agree with David - Suswa is fantastic. I'm looking forward to see them with one's own eyes.

Hi Paul,
I agree with all above: Suswa is outstanding. Well done!!! :)

I notice Ian does not have his in his catalogue. :( :( :(

Hi Maren,
Like its Edgecombe parent, Suswa can be a bit miffy to grow; rather prone to fungal pathogens. (I wonder if that is why Ian doesn't list it this time?) Still, it's not as bad as some in this respect so I'm certainly going to do my best to propagate and distribute it. I find for ones like this -especially Edgecombe whose colours are so wonderful - that the best approach is to re-make the cross every 3 or 4 years so that you always have some new stock coming along to replace the inevitable losses. It's worth the effort for these outstanding colours!

One clone of P. Red Colobus consistently holds its flowers almost straight up (see first picture below). I would be very interested to know if people find this feature appealing or if you think it looks awful!
Second picture shows Pleione Talapoin (P. Askia x P. forrestii)

P. suswa is a real beauty however i really like  Pleione xbarbarae x P. Santorini 'Yellow Wagtail' hybrid. Very nice colour! :)

Regarding P Red colobus... it is quiet interesting but I think it will be even more interesting to try some crossing with some Pleione that have flowers looking more down to the ground ( P. coronaria for an example)
P. Talapoin looks stunning aswell  ;)

All the best!

Paul,
just a comment on Red colobus.
I do like pleiones that present their flowers well and slightly upright but for me this is slightly too upright!
Regards,
David

Hello Paul
Must admit, I find the very upright Pleione Red Colobus a little too upright.

Hi Paul,

I feel that Pleione Red Colobus presents a welcome opportunity to cross with something that considers its navel. There are lots who do that, so much the pity, Orinoco 'Gemini' for example.  The Colobus's colour is nice, should produce something very pleasing.

That's a good point, Maren - and one I hadn't thought of - yes, there are quite a lot of "droopers" out there who could  benefit from a bit of this star-gazing feature.

I have produced a new list of spare Pleiones for sale including the first release of many of my own hybrids. Everyone who has had a list from me in the past should have received this new one today. If you did not, let me know (private message) and I will email you one. If anyone else would like one, please ask. Many items on the list are in very short supply and some have already sold out within hours of me emailing out the list, mainly the larger flowering size bulbs. However, smaller sizes of many of them are still available.
Thanks

Pleione Aye-Aye is a beautiful hybrid but seems very prone to disease so is hard to build up numbers. It hasn't flowered for a couple of years either as a result, but this year has done better. This one pictured is the best clone so far.
