Hi Paul

A very nice series again.
As with everyone else, Angwatibo is really something special. ::) ::) ::)
I am just about to de-flask my Edgecombe and am looking forward to these.

Thanks again for showing them all.

Hi Paul,
what a wonderful collection. Congratulations. Angwatibo is exquisite, and the others not far behind, love the Edgecombe.
Interesting to see a new autumn flowering one, I have a particular love for those. Would you say that Slender Loris is an improvement on praecox?  and does it still retain the glorious perfume ?

One more question please, your yunnanensis x coronaria cross is just coming into flower. Did you register it?

Hello Paul

Absolutely smashing new hybrids. Congrets. They are all looking very good but I especially like Muriel. The combination of the colours is wonderfull. And the remake of Edgecombe proves it still is a notorious hybrid. Really spectacular.

Keep up the work! ;)

Hi Pete,
P. Indri has proved quite variable - some came out white and looking pretty much like the grandiflora parent, some came out pale yellow with red markings in the lip and another is just opening which looks as if it will be different again. I will post some pics once I have got this latter one taken.

Maren, yes i think Slender Loris is an improvment on straight praecox. Although the colours are similar, the petals are better - praecox petals often recurve badly, can be very narrow and the whole flower may droop badly. Sleder Loris does none of these things. As for scent... to be honest I can't remember just now! Will have to check this again next autumn.

The cross of yunnanensis x coronaria was made by Martin Hazelton, not one of mine. He has recently registered this as P. Kyoto

Cheers

Hi Paul, thank you for clearing this up and sorry about my mistake in attributing the Kyoto to you.

May I put myself on the waiting list for Slender Loris????? ;)

Peter,
Here are some pictures of P. Indri as promised. These 3 examples show just how variable this cross proved to be.

Cheers

Hi Paul,
how extraordinary. you wouldn't think they could come out of the same seedpod. Number 2 is my favourite. I have to admit to a penchant for white flowers and this one really appeals. One more for the waiting list. :)
Thank you for showing them to us.

Hi Paul . Certainly a big variation within Indri cross.
My favourite of these would be the third clone .

Many thanks Paul, nice Indri pics.
It is exciting to see a cross that produces such varying and very nice plants. My favourite would be the first one. I will eagerly await mine flowering one day.

Today I sent out by email my new list of Pleione for sale. Due to a problem with my email server it is possible a few people did not receive it. If you were expecting a copy and did not get one, please let me know.

Thnaks
