The last picture by Hakone, Cyp bardolphianum. First time I have seen the Cyp in cultivation.

I checked some of my Cyp clumps in the garden. Here are some pictures of the bigger clumps. I gently remove the top soil to show the noses.

The first one is the hybrid Sebastian. In the spring 2010 it had only one bud (flowering) and look how it looks now after just two growth cycles in the garden. Sebastian is not one of the easiest hybrids though. I lost two smaller ones this winter. Two others don't show much growth (still no flowering bud) and three others are beginning to bulk. The one showed here is a good doer for me.

The second one is x andrewsii. Acquired last fall with 7 buds ( I counted them all before planting) and it decided to put three extra (non flowering) buds up this fall/winter. I must have overlooked them before planting, but it looks promising.

Very pretty and difficult to photograph being so small. I lost a bowl full of these when we had very cold weather in November 2010, everyone of them died :'(

While we're on this subject, is it C. plectrochilon or C. pletrochilum?
The references to both are about 50/50.

This one got through the winter 2010/11 nicely.
This year 3 shoots have emerged ;D

And a wonderful little plant it is too  ;D

A plectrochilum by any other name would look as sweet :D

Looks like some sort of cartoon character with two bulbous eyes.
