Pleione Iris Butterfield 'Yaffles'

6th January 2021 27th March 2021 2nd April 2021
A yellow hybrid raised by Ian Butterfield and registered in 1994. P. forrestii x P. x confusa.
P.forrestii is not a very vigorous or reliable thing with me, and I was hoping that this hybrid might be stronger. Unfortunately although it flowered immediately from the pseudobulb, it produced very weak growth in the rest if the season. It limped along for a couple of years and then gave up.
