Genus Pleione

Pleiones, popularly called ’Nepalese Crocuses’ or ’window-sill orchids’, are amongst the easiest orchids to grow. There has been a remarkable resurgence of interest in this delightful genus, with the introduction of new species, spectacular hybrids, and a new-found place in alpine gardens.

The lavishly illustrated second edition of this excellent study provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the biology, classification and cultivation of species and hybrids, together with detailed notes on cultivation.
