Pleione Hybrida


Pleione Hybrida orchids have big spectacular flowers that are easily grown in a frost free greenhouse, on a cool shaded windowsill or outdoors if they are given adequate winter protection.    The flowers,  borne singly or in pairs are made up of a central tube with a large flower lip usually ridged and fringed and marked with colored blotches ranging from dark pink to snow white and all shades in between.  We deliver plants with 10 – 15 pseudobulbs, which must be kept partly above ground when planting, just as they are delivered in the pot. Flowering takes place between  April – May and can last up to 4 weeks.  For more information see: Orchid Care, Our Publications and Quality.
