Lewisia cotyledon 'Regenbogen' (Large Plant)

Hardy Perennial

Lewisia 'Regenbogen' is known as one of the best and most colourful mixes of Lewisia available. A neat little perennial that is usually reserved for alpine houses, but it can also be grown outdoors in rockeries, wall or rock crevices or in alpine troughs. Bright blooms in tropical colours, in single and semi-double forms, are produced above neat rosettes of evergreen foliage.

Lewisia copes well in hot dry conditions, but is equally suitable for cooler summers, and can even be overwintered outdoors with some protection from wet weather. Height: 25cm (10"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Grow Lewisia in full sun on any neutral to acid, well drained soil. Lewisia particularly dislikes wet conditions. On heavier soils, incorporate plenty of grit to improve drainage, prior to planting.
Feed and water Lewisia plants regularly throughout summer. Deadhead faded Lewisia flowers frequently to encourage more blooms to be produced. Lewisia plants can be overwintered if protected from winter wet. This can be achieved by placing a piece of glass or plastic over the crown of the plant, raised on bricks or similar. Alternatively lift plants and keep them dry in a cold greenhouse.
