Lewisia cotyledon

Broadleaf Lewisia, Bitter Root

Perfect for rock gardens, the flowers on these succulent perennials make a tidy but eye-catching show in spring. While prized by lovers of alpine plants, Lewisias have a tendency to rot. They need excellent drainage, and are well-suited to containers. Add fine gravel to the soil. Deciduous varieties need a drying out period after flowering, so water infrequently. Evergreen types need some shade. Sold in containers or start from seed.
