Lewisia are native to western North America, and one of the most treasured rock garden plants. They form low, fleshy rosettes of tough evergreen leaves, bearing large star-shaped flowers in late spring and early summer. This selection features flowers of cotton-candy pink, touched with salmon when they first open. Inclined to repeat flower in the autumn. Best in a cool rock garden setting, with excellent drainage. Excellent in rock walls, gravel screes or alpine troughs. In hot summer climates these do best with partial shade. Sure death is to try and grow Lewisia in average border conditions. Drought tolerant once established.
