A superb plant with long white petals around a large white lip which is frilled and fringed around its edge.
Inside are intense yellow blotches, overlaid with a second layer of orange-yellow. The effect is stunning and this really does deserve its name.
Sometimes this can abort its flowers in spring if the winter storage temperature is not fairly constant (as with forrestii). Growth is also as for forrestii, in an open, mossy compost.
NOT available for Japan, Norway, Switzerland, U.S.A. etc.
Pleione are no longer shipped outside of the UK and EU.
