Lewisia cotyledon 'Elise Mixed'

Hardy Perennial

  • First lewisia to repeat flower throughout summer
Masses of starry flowers in a range of fruity colours, including stripes and picotees adorn slender stems above neat rosettes of fleshy leaves. Traditionally grown as perennials in alpine houses, new breeding has brought us Lewisia 'Elise Mixed' which flowers in its first year, making a bright and attractive annual bedding plant! Winner of a Fleuroselect Gold Medal, these exceptional plants repeat flower throughout summer, lighting up beds, borders, containers and rock gardens. Tolerating heat and drought well, Lewisia is also perfectly happy with cooler temperatures and will overwinter with protection from wet weather. Height: 25cm (10"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Ideal For:
patio, alpine & rockery
Flowering Period:
May, June, July, August, September

Pot up Lewisia plants into pots of free-draining compost, and grow Lewisia on in frost-free conditions until large enough to plant outside. When all risk of frost has passed and plants are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Plant Lewisia outdoors in light, well drained, neutral to acid soil that has been enriched with well rotted manure or garden compost. Choose a position in full sun in beds, borders, containers and rock gardens. Lewisias also thrive in the crevices of retaining walls.
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.
