Pleione (Garden Orchid)


Light requirements: partial shade

Landscape uses: a place where the ground has changed slightly and not too dry. The best soil is half decomposed leaves, possibly even half rotted pine needles and that mixed with the already existing garden soil.

Pleiones come from areas with distinct seasons of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter and grow best wherever the average summer temperatures is 25 centigrade. In winter, while they are dormant, they need to be kept cold but just frost-free. A range between 1 and 5 centigrade is ideal. While they are dormant they don't need any water at all. Only when they are starting to grow they need waterIf need be, they can be kept in a fridge if your winters are usually too warm. They also can be planted in pots.

Pleione Rossini, Verdi and Vivaldi are new selections (selected by our nursery) from Pleione formosana. Our nursery brings them to market from 2011. 
These varieties are registered at the RHS and were published in Orchid Review Supplement 119(1294): 39 (June 2011). The text of this Supplement can be downloaded from the RHS website.
