Pleione early 2009.
« on: February 02, 2009, 05:50:31 PM »
This year it is my ambition to remember to take pictures of my Pleione as they flower. Here are the first flowers of the year, a couple of hybrids between springflowering and autumnflowering, making them winter flowering. Nice feature that means you can have flowering Pleione from the end of September to june if you are lucky.




Pleione Barcena (Pln. formosana x Pln. praecox )   



Pleione Sangay (Pln. limprichtii x Pln. praecox)   

Hopefully more to come.

Lars

I got them last winter so its' my first season with autumn and winterflowering Pleione. So far they have't been as difficult as i expected tehm to be. I'm more experienced in the springflowering.

It looks like it is actually growing outside and flowering in the snow. Do you grow it outside all year round?

I grow only a few Pleiones outside round the year: forrestii, grandiflora, formosana alba and limprichtii. But they are well proctected from wetness.
