Lewisia-2014

The new Lewisia season has begun, at least here in the UK. My first two:-

 

Lewisia tweedyi Lemon Form

and an orange/red form of L. cotyledon

Really nice, David.

 

Those L. cotyledon's sure put out vibrant colors!

In a very dirty pot an apricot form of Lewisia tweedyi grown from seed quite a few years ago now. I love the hint of pink at the ends of the petals.

A rather nice yellow form of Lewisia cotyledon grown from seed from **Ashwood Nursery** and sown October 2012. Also Lewisia congdonii which is tall and staggly and has very small flowers, all of which makes it difficult to photograph (well for me anyway!)

 

Ashwood Nursery is in the middle part of England (near Birmingham) and, amongst many other genus specialises in Lewisia. Their Web Site is well worth a look and for those who are not able to make use of the Nursery a longing as well.

You shouldn't tempt us (me) like this David, neither with the plants nor the nursery!

I did grow some Lewisias before but had to shut my eyes as I had no proper place or them.

For some reason the Site would not load pictures last night so here are the remainder from my last post just to tempt you again Trond.

Sorry I don't know why they didn't attach.

I went into sunlight today for the first time in days, although it seems like months. I saw this Lewisia in bloom, and was really quite stunned. Pretty much everything else is behind, but here, the Lewisias are ahead.
