Lewisia nevadensis description
In February you will start to see signs of life, as the first leaves push upwards, quickly followed by the white flowers.
It can flower for quite a long time – even possibly in to early summer.
After that the plant goes dormant and there is no foliage until the following February.
How easy is it to grow:
Good for containers, an alpine bed or rock garden and is easy to grow in well drained soil, but due to it’s small size and losing it’s leaves through the summer it is probably better for the alpine enthusiast.
We have plenty more alpine plants for sale – many are easy to grow.
