Why does the RBGE still label their plant Cypripedium parviflorum X calceolus when this cross known as 'Emil'?

Some great pictures. However I suspect these are Pleione chunii not Pleione hookeriana. Far to tall for hookeriana and from what I can see of the bulbs they wrong shape and size.

Re Pleione ?hookeriana.... yes, David, Pascal made the same suggestion (on page 4)... I'll contact Squirrel to let him know the opinions.

Carol, I am making strenuous efforts to establish a more "normal" sleeping pattern. Not  really succeeding but I at least try to wean myself off the "pooter" at a reasonable hour these days  :-X

author Maggi -Re Pleione ?hookeriana.... yes, David, Pascal made the same suggestion (on page 4)... I'll contact Squirrel to let him know the opinions.

I contacted Cyril about his Pleione and this is what he said.....

 "I had already mentioned at the Joint Rock meeting at Gardening Scotland that the plant was probably Pleione chunii and showed the committee the picture from Koolplants comparing P. hookeriana and P. chunii.  Nobody seemed to be very sure but Kit Grey-Wilson said I should check Phillip Cribb's monograph.  Unfortunately that was not very helpful as the true P. chunii was not in cultivation when the book was written.  I received the plant from Rob Potterton as P. hookeriana var. sinensis, which seems to be a synonym of P. chunii. 
This is complicated by the fact that the true P. aurita changed its name to P. chunii before going back to aurita.  Confused?  Carole Bainbridge checked the records and found that P. chunii has not had any previous award also, so the P.C. will stand.  As this was a P.C., a flower was cut and will be sent to Kew for the records.  I am fairly certain this will be identified as P. chunii."

Visited Maggi and Ian yesterday.  Amazing drifts of Dactylorhyza in their garden.  Maggi reminded me abot posting a better picture of Viola verecunda yakusimana.  I found a pic of the original plant taken in 2008 which I posted for id.  The original plant got prone to botrytis in winter and eventually died but left lots of seedlings in the pot and in other pots around the greenhouse.

Hi Roma,
 it was good to see you... thanks for finding such a good photo of the little... TINY.... Viola.... it is so cute.
We reckon the flowers are about 8 to 9 mm across and 4mm deep..... minute but perfectly marked and quite irresistible.
