Pete ,your yellow clone of Santorini appears to be the same as mine  :)
I believe there were only about seven different clones from the original cross and am not sure if any re-crosses are around .

Some more

Harlequin "Norman"
Taliense
Askia
Vesuvius "Phoenix"

Eric

Yes my yellow Santorini does look the same as yours, a bit like the cultivar Yellow Wagtail but with less red and yellow in the lip. Im not sure how large the variation was or if there was a remake of this cross. I only have the two different clones of this cross myself.

Welcome to the forum Karel ! Great to see Pleione grown in the Czech Republic as well !

Luc - Santorini does prove to be a fairly easy Pleione to satisfy ,often making very large bulbs. As often is the case , like many hybrids ,some some clones are easier than others to grow and multiply. Also they have the odd off year too. :'(
 I really like Santorini and this is one I would not want to be without.

A few more hybrids

Stromboli "Robin"
San Salvador
Rakata "Blackbird"
Kilauea "Curlew"

Some more including a Shantung sold as Silver Wedding, but am not sure this is correct as I believe it should have more pink on the petals .Any comments welcome on this.

Shantung "Silver Wedding" ????
Shantung "Top Score"
Tongariro "Jackdaw"
