Plant Information

A plant destined for rock garden or container, it is relatively a no-muss-no-fuss plant once happily in its niche; a mostly sunny site, quick-draining soil and being kept sufficiently dry in winter pretty much all that’s really required.

Native Lewisias all have the fleshy leaves of their dry country succulent brethren; some have that lightning bolt of intense color typical of the plants of the desert, others more pale and delicate appearing. Each is uniquely lovely and will add a special cheer to your garden with a limited amount of care.

Origin: High, rocky areas in the western half of the United States and Canada.

mostly sun, but thrives when there is also a little shade; light to regular water but with sharp drainage, dry in winter.

Maintenance: deadhead to encourage new flowering.

Pests/Diseases: root rot due to too much retained moisture; susceptible to hail damage to succulent evergreen leaves; occasional slug damage but virtually pest free.
