Pleione chunii C.L.Tso, originating from southern China and flowering in spring, is sometimes treated as a subspecies of Pleione hookeriana, but current consent (2021) is to treat it as separate species. Color forms range from white to pale pink with yellow and orange lip markings. The most distinguishable feature are the ridges on the lip which are very finely divided in this species, almost giving the impression of an iris beard. Photos by Martin Bohnet.
