The Genus Pleione
Phillip Cribb & Ian Butterfield
Pleione are some of the most popular varieties of orchid as they are relatively easy to grow. Because they're endemic to the mountains and foothills of the Himalayas, India, Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Taiwan, and China, they easily adapt to the climate of the Northern Hemisphere. The authors provide a comprehensive account of the biology, classification and cultivation of 22 species and natural hybrids. There is also a list of registered hybrids. Near Fine Hardback in a Near Fine Dust Jacket. Second Edition. Signed 166 pages with many colour illustrations, line drawings, a bibliography and an index.
