RHS Award of Garden Merit

Pleione formosana

Pleione formosana
€6.90
/ 3 Piece(s)


The most famous window-sill orchid. Originally she is from Taiwan (Taiwan used to be called Formosa in the old days) but she has been grown in Europe in botanical gardens and plant collection for over a century. A grateful and easy to grow little bulb, once I have seen Pleione formosana beautifully frown in between peat lumps (see picture)
