Pleione 'Sifaka' is, as the primate name (Sifakas are a genus of Lemurs from Madagascar) implies, a hybrid registered by Paul Cumbleton in 2005. It combines the growability of Pleione formosana and P. yuannensis, the ancestors of the seed parent, with the yellow of the more capricious P. forrestii. In the petals, yellow and pink overlap to form a delicate shade of apricot.
