Hi Derek,
Nice to see you here in Pleioneland.  Some beautiful plants you have there - I have a Doreen too, but she's not my daughter  ;D  It's Britania Doreen and she'll be flowering in a couple of days..
Harlequin Norman is very colourful to that's another one to put on my wants list.
Adn I'm with you Maggi - all the alba forms of formosana are very beautiful indeed.

Hans, Your nr 3 is definitely hekla Locking Stumps.
Nr two does look very much like a Rakata, but I don't know the clone Rock Dove - so I can't confirm.
What's nr 1 ????

I hope to be able to post some more of my own tomorrow or the day after - the higher temperatures (we had 15 °C today) are speeding things up now.

Luc, the first is from Mr. Butterfield and should be Rakata Rock Dove. This Pleione is very large (15cm high).

You've got me all puzzled there Hans - I'd say the third picture (DSCF 8778) is Locking stumps... not the first one.

I don't know what the first picture is though (DSCF 8692) ???

Or are we mixing things up ? ???

Some more Pleiones flowering, safely inside, while hail is making a mess outside  :'(

Hope you enjoy them

1 & 2 Pleione yunnanensis

3) P. britannia 'Doreen' (this is mine Derek)
4) P. paricutin - rather small flower but I love the strong coloured lip
5) P. x barbarae the natural hybrid  of P. grandiflora and P. bulbocodioides

Luc,

These are extraordinarily beautiful and a plant I do not grow except for a few of the more ordinary cultivars.

Many thanks, Paddy

Thanks Paddy and David - glad you like them - you should think about starting to grow them - gives you a great winter occupation repotting them when there's not much else going on in and around the garden.

Luc, I would love to have a go but at present I just do not have the space available under glass.

I guess that's a problem we all share David - we have to make choices in life....

Hi Derek !
Very nice Pleione - and it's not unusual for a fully grown bulb to produce two flower stems - you should have two bulbs next year !
I have'nt grown Tall "Red tailed hawk" - but from the Butterfield catalogue, it does seem to fit the discription :
"Dark purple pink flowers with lips which are almost solid dark red with yellow keels"

I hope to post some more of mine tomorrow - today was too dark to make decent photographs.

Pleione forrestii, not perfect, but semi-alba
Pleione pleionoides (3x)? (an extraordinary dark red, not a hybrid)
Pleione formosana Iris?
Pleione Eiger Cream Form? (white)
