Pleione Krakatoa

11th January 2019 17th April 2019 20th April 2023
A hybrid between P. yunnanensis and P. forrestii raised by Ian Butterfield and registered in 1992.
I find the hybrid easier to grow and more robust than either of the parents. This is an unselected seedling but it isn't very far from P. Krakatoa 'Wheatear'. Perhaps that resemblance is to be expected from sister seedlings of a primary hybrid.
