Some great specimen Hans !
I love the alba form of forrestii but have never been able to find one  :'(
I love the dark red lipped pleionoides too Hans - beautiful - I'm posting one myself later on.
As to formosana Iris, I believe you can remove the question mark - it looks very much like mine anyway.

Here's my harvest for this week :

1) Pl. pleionoides - dark red form (Wit my thanks to Jozef Lemmens.)
2) Pl. irazu "Cheryl" - very soft colours
3) Pl. shantung "Ducat"
4) Pl. rakata "Shot Silk" - it doesn't open completely - it has two petals that are attached to one another..

More to come in a few days and hoping for other contributors.

Hello David,
If you really want to get hooked, just go and have a look(if you don't already know it) at Paul Cumbleton's site :

Luc,

Noo........ don't give me more websites to look at.  The pics you post HERE are bad enough to get me addicted to the darn things.  I don't need MORE of them!!!!!  :o

Veeery nice pics you've posted.  I must admit I haven't actually gone to look at the website.  I don't think I want to start crying from jealousy right at the moment.   ;D
Cheers.

Hi Paul,
I could send you some very small bulbils if you were interested, but I don't think they will be considered as seeds by your health services.... :( .... and do have a look at the website... if it's too much for you, you can always consider getting drunk... ???? ;D

Luc,
     More smashing pictures of Pleiones,I have now got a long list for next year.
It is easy writing a list more difficult paying for them.

Glad you like them Derek - here's some more - this heat is making them go over much faster than they should though...  :'(

1) Pleione stromboli "Fireball"
2) P. bulbocodioides, a clone with a very long and narrow trumpet...
3) P. tongariro
4) P. vesuvius "Tawny Owl" - a new favourite for me.

Come on Hans - I'm sure you've got some more up your sleeve as well ???
