Pleione formosana 'Oriental Splendour'

19th April 2018 27th March 2020 1st April 2023
A very old clone originally imported and distributed as P. pricei but recognised as a form of P.formosana and named by R. M. Adey.
I have grown it several times, first in the 1970's (and lost it), then in the late 1980's (and lost it). I bought this one in 2018 from a curious mixture of nostalgia and obstinacy.
