Pleione "Shantung"

By TonyDy
Another pleione but this time one of the rarer yellow ones. Most pleiones come in purple, pink or white but this has been bred from the natural yellow variety "Pleione Forrestii" which grows in the Himalayas.
This is another scan from a slide.

You're lucky to have seen this rare species. I saw some purple and pink in Vietnam and Taiwan last year.
Lovely image showing the full simple beauty of the flower.
