A HUGE improvement over older Lewisia, and much easier for home gardeners to grow! It takes heat a lot better, and keeps repeating its colorful blooms up to 4 times over spring and summer. 6-8" rosettes of fleshy leaves are topped with clusters of flowers on non-flopping 6-8" stems, sporting much more vibrant colors than other Lewisias. Drought tolerant, it needs impeccable drainage, and will even do well planted in crevices in a rock wall. Do NOT overwater, especially in winter. Lewisia cotyledon 'Elise'
