Lewisia cotyledon

This elegantly beautiful and rewarding perennial is surprisingly easy to grow. The exotic delicate flowers hide an amazingly tough plant. It is cold hardy to minus 10 degrees and will flower for months. The spoon shaped dark green fleshy leaves sit below panicles of gorgeous flowers in amazing colours. Perfect for that sunny winter spot (will take some shade), and will flower repeatedly. Don’t over water and protect from slugs and snails.

Spoon-shaped dark green fleshy leaves emerge as flat rosettes. Panicles of funnel-shaped flowers are borne on stems of up to 20cm long. Height and width 15cm – 30cm.
