It’s back! Pleione returns

We’ve passed the two year mark for our plant of the terrestrial orchid, Pleione ‘Alishan’. Our clump produced 2 flowers last year, but has expanded to 7 flowering stems since last spring. Last year, we planted several others varieties, so are still awaiting their emergence….fingers, toes, and eyes crossed.
