Maggi, do thank John and Rosemarie from me (and the other Pleione adepts) for the good pictures.  And thanks to you for going through all that trouble to get them on the forum ! Fortunately you made some personal benefit from the operation in the form of frogspawn  ;D ! I'm happy for you !

Piton and Clair look very nice but they are way ahead of their brethren overhere.

I am puzzled by the name  P humilis "Shantung" though - I've never heard of it in that context and the flower looks like the normal Shantung (formosana x confusa) ?  Maybe something got mixed up somehow ?

Anyway, thanks again for posting the pix, I hope there will be much more Pleione shown as the season progresses.

Re humilis Shantung ; yes, you are correct, Luc,  the mistake is here. Was thinking more of photos than of names!

Ok Maggi - that's a relief ! I thought I had missed something somewhere... ;D
By the way - have you noticed I am no longer a junior member ?  :D
Quite proud of myself I have finally turned "full"...  8)

Thanks Maggi - and as you can see from my avatar - it's not exactly my silhouet you've pictured above.  ;D

Beautiful shots Hans and what variations - the second one is quite distinct - some P. forrestii alba blood there ????

I've got my Pleione rainier flowering at the moment (P. shantung x P. humilis)

Two more Pleione flowering for me today :

1) Pleione San Salvador (P. Shantung x P. forrestii) - quite colourful I think
2) Pleione formosana alba "Polar Sun" - they don't come any whiter than this one...

Hi Hans !
Glad you like them - Your Ranier seems quite different from my clone - much more brown markings on the lip ! Beautiful
