This little Lewisia was blooming in my garden last month. Named after the intrepid explorer of Lewis and Clarke fame, it’s a beauty. The colors are warm tones of orange, yellow and pink. This is yummy color. Eye candy. Loveliness to behold. I imagine that it tastes like honey butter with a little bit of raspberry tangerine syrup and sparkling with beams of sunshine. It’s pretty tough too. I brought home some four inch pots nine months ago and just stuck them in a larger pot. Not planted, just waiting. They seem to like this position, under a Japanese Maple. Good drainage, part sun, tight space and mostly ignored. This spring they bloomed for weeks and appear to be going strong. I’m looking forward to finding a permanent space for this sweet alpine Lewisia.
