Lewisia Plant Features

Lewisia is a delightful flower for early spring that has delightful daisy-shaped flowers in a wide mix of colors. These blooms are often striped with contrasting colors, giving them extra appeal and interest. The plant is perfect for growing in container gardens on sunny patios, decks, and balconies

The cheery flowers, in shades of gold, peach, pink, orange, and white, contrast beautifully against the plants' dark green foliage. Relatively low plants, lewisia are perfect for bowl-shaped containers and small pots where you can enjoy the colorful flowers up close. 

Lewisia Growing Instructions

Lewisia appreciate a sunny spot and well-drained soil. Their rich, dark-green leaves store water, so the plants are quite low-maintenance in planters. In fact, take care not to overwater them; they will rot. 

You can get lewisia to bloom longer by removing their flowers as they fade. It's quick and easy to do so -- just pinch off the old flower stems to make way for new ones! 

Another great feature of lewisia is that it doesn't typically require fertilization -- you can practically plant it and forget it!

Note: Lewisia is adorable and charming, but not meant for human or animal consumption.
