Pleione hybrids (II).
Pleione Rakata is a hybrid of Shantung and P.speciosa and has produced some of the largest flowered hybrids available today. Some clones are extremely handsome, but some need to be kept cold in the winter or they will not flower. This plant is an unamed clone.
Pleione Piton is a cross between P.formosana and P. yunnanensis which combines the delicacy and colouration of yunnanensis with the vigour of formosana. A great personal favourite!
Pleione Soufriere is another favourite with a lovely lemon yellow lip.
