Hi Christian,
Yes I sell my hybrids directly. But I only make a list for sale once every 3 or 4 years. I just did one this year (now all sold) so it will be quite a long time before i can sell again. I will add you to my email list so you get a sales list next time I make one.

Kind regards

Very nice colors. You rarely see hybrids of Pleiones in the States.

It's quite a while since I posted new pictures, so here are three new autumn-flowering hybrids. The crosses are:

Pleione Mandrill = P. praecox x P. yunnanensis
Pleione Marmoset = P. Piton x P. maculata
P. Macaque (2 pictures of different clones) = P. saxicola x P. forrestii

Lovely, Paul, I particularly like the P. Marmoset. Would you grow that a little warmer because of the maculata influence?

Hi Maren,
Yes I keep Marmoset with the maculatas so warmer than the rest of my pleiones. Macaque is perfectly happy kept with the main collection, as is Mandrill although I also keep a few of these indoors too with the maculatas as an insurance.

As you see, Marmoset is rather like a large flowered maculata in appearance though with narrower petals. When the flower first opens the petals reflex right back and spoil the look of the flower, but over the course of 3-4 days they move back again to a normal position. Hybrids with maculata are so rare, so I am really pleased with this one. Numbers are slowly but surely increasing so I hope to be able to make it available in a couple of years or so time.

Cheers

Hi Paul,
There is fantastic to see all your beautiful hybrids. Mandril has very nice shape of petals and it seems that will be multiply very well.
Marmoset looks better than last year, so I see it will be very promising hybrid.
However Macaque on the first picture is a favourite of mine ;)

All of them are lovely crosses. Mandrill shows the best flower shape while the colour combination of Macaque is especially nice in my opinion.  :D

One of the first pictures I showed in this thread was Pleione Gelada which is P. maculata x P. grandiflora. Until now that was the only clone of this cross that had flowered. Now another has opened and this to me is a much better clone. Nice to have something like this in flower at Christmas!

I like that  very much , Paul . Those with clear colours ( no streaks) on the back petals are my preference.

Fantastic flowers Paul. I specialy like the P. Macaque. Hope you are able to build up a stock, big enough to offer some for sale.  ;) ;) ;D
Interesting to see, what Pln. saxicola can contribute to hybrids in the future.

It's been a while since I posted any new crosses, so below are three to enjoy. These days I only make 3 or 4 new crosses each year.

The pictures are:

Pleione Kituro 'Sulphur' x P. grandiflora
Pleione xbarbarae x P. Santorini 'Yellow Wagtail'
Pleione Suswa - my own remake of the hybrid originally done by Ian Butterfield. (When I saw the beautiful orangey colours this cross produced for Ian I just had to do it myself!)
