Rob,

Hans posted a pic on the last page of this topic of rakata 'Shot Silk' that looks very little like yours.  Either they can vary a lot or one of them isn't correct?  The one I grow under the name 'Shot Silk' more resembles Hans, but I am aware that sometimes what is imported into this country is not necessarily correct.  I just wanted to point it out to find out whether they really ARE that variable, and if not then maybe the correct name for the imposter can be found?
Cheers.

Yes Rob - there seems to be some difference... can't take any more shots as this is last years bloom and this year there's leaf but no flower  :-\ on P.R. shot silk.

Exquisite red pleione Dave - I would be tempted to say it's P. pleionoides - one of these magnificent red lipped cultivars - maybe someone else will confirm.

Hi Hans, Nice photo's and you have a good collection. I have a Lucy Diamond but mine is white! Not sure which it should be. Anybody have the answer?

Rob,

If your Shot Silk is right for description then mine (and I assume Hans as it looks the same as mine) is not the same thing.  intense colour, but very different to yours.  It would seem that Hans got it from the same supplier as whoever imported it into Australia did apparently.  A lovely flower, but doesn't match your description.  Always difficult to know whether what we get here in Aus is correct, as I've mentioned before.
Cheers.

Yes, Lucy Diamond is white. 

Here's a super clump of Pleione growing outside in Ian McEnery's garden.  Not sure what? someone said straight
P limprichtii, or is it a hybrid?  Ian?

Diane you are correct it is supposed to limprichtii or at least that it was bought as eons ago. I have some under glass but it seems to do even better outside if given a sheet of glass to keep the excess moisture during the winter.


I don't grow many pleiones but here is another acquired a couple of years ago rakata locking stumps
