Lewisia cotyledon 'Safira Collection'

Hardy Perennial

This collection of hardy lewisia plants offers a unique colour mix and the longest flowering season we've seen - continuous colour from March to November! We've saved the stripes and picotees for other mixes in our range, to bring you a classy colour collection for use in sunny borders, rock gardens and patio containers. This low growing hardy perennial is covered in masses of starry blooms as soon as spring gets going, and continues to perform right through to late autumn. This sun-loving perennial copes well with our cooler temperatures, but benefits being sheltered from winter rains. Lewisia Safira Collection offer superb performance for very little effort! Height and spread: 20cm (9").

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.
