Linus and KyushuCalanthe: are your talking about Pleione our Paeonia??
Oops, my bad He's talking about Pleione, I'm talking about Peonies. I need to stop answering posts before waking up (though it is 6:30 AM right now).
There are plenty of Pleione in Yunnan. In northern Sichuan I saw P. bulbocodioides growing in the same valley as C. plectrochilum. Let's try this again, from efloras, Pleione in China: http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=125914
The entire region gets a distinct dry season in winter regardless of elevation. Since both P. armeniacum and many Pleione often grow as lithophytic plants they would dry out considerably during those months.
