Pleione ‘Hekla’ (I think). Has been in this trough for 2 winters with no additional protection. Always a chance of losing it but it was one I had acquired and didn’t really want to put too much space and time into it so every year is a bonus. More cultivars going in the garden this year.

Hi Steve,
   Just got back from a few days away… and catching up on your photos…. Excellent as always..
   What is the origin of your P. x confusa? It looks rather like Ducat to me! The stippled pink stripe on the petals I associate with Shantung crosses.. also the distribution of the red in the lip is more extensive than I would expect from x confusa.
   I attach archive photos of the two, as, sadly, I no longer have x confusa myself.

Thanks Tim.
After looking at your images and reading your post I scuttled off to check my plants, a few of which are still in flower. I also looked at images from previous years and other online resources. I have to agree, my plants do indeed appear to be Shantung Ducat.

I have plants labelled as x confusa from two sources -one is from a close friend who was initially given a pseudobulb almost 15 years ago from a contact of his. The other source was from an initial pseudobulb bought from the late Günther Blankenburg in 2013 (as x confusa “Golden Gate”). It is descendants of the latter plant that feature in my image above.

Many thanks for pointing this out. Though disappointing I must admit to having had some nagging doubts myself.

By intent I only grow forms of Pleione species and Primary hybrids. Having purchased many plants online in the past I find that I now have a number of un-named hybrids that have been sold to me as species. I have pseudobulbs labelled as Pl. grandiflora red lip from three different sources: two of these have flowered and are clearly hybrids (see pictures below). The third has grown well but has never flowered. I have also in the past bought a number of Pl. forrestii white/alba/semialba -only to discover them to be yellow forrestii or something else on flowering.

Here are the two flowered “Pl. grandiflora red lip”. The first is an autumn-flowering plant, possibly from the Pl. Wharfdale grex. I would be grateful for suggestions as to what the second plant is (the shape/form of the flower is reminiscent of yunnanensis or even scopulorum but it clearly also has forrestii blood).

Having looked at Pleione Gallery photos. for some time I wonder at the variation in named plants and wonder if the naming is correct? If the flowers are different then perhaps there has been some "crossing" in the plants history, then again, I,m not a Taxonomist. Well grown plants Steve, you must have a large collection and the expertise to grow them.

Nice plants, Steve. Those two Im pretty sure are Wharfedale ‘Pine Warbler’ and Krakatoa. The latter especially is beautiful.
