Visited Ian Butterfield's nursery last weekend, and he sold me this nice form of P. humilis with deep red markings on the lips - two flowers from one bulb as well!

Cheers,

Alex

These are my first flowers of the season;
forrestii - I am not sure if this is var. Vietnam that I purchased last year. It is richly coloured & has a fabulously frilled lip.
Eiger - I obtained this as a cream form but it is really a nice white.
Pinchbeck Diamond - considered to be an Eiger clone.

Good pix, Pete.... that forrestii couldn't be any more yellow, or more  frilly, could it?

Well yes Maggie, it is a more golden yellow but my camera fails to capture the correct hue, (suppose I should get a new camera!)

I agree - that forrestii is definitely a bit frilly! I like the Pinchbeck Diamond a lot - the throat has great markings.

I'd be pleased enough with a camera that took those shots for me, Pete....  8)

Pete, as I don't really like hybrids, I'm only focusing on your P. forrestii witch is a really nice clone !
Especially the lip; Does it smell ??

Hello, Maxime, welcome to the Forum.
 I have edited the size of your lovely pleione photo to make it better fit the page.  :D

Thank you  ;), i'll take another picture of this hybride whe all my Pleione UW will be blooming  ;D (i don't have any large pot to plant them altogether  :( )

I have been visiting this forum for months but I dared not register till today, maybe I should have done so before ... (however Pleione are not really attractive during summer  ::))
