Genus Notes - Lewisia
Like jazz, America's indigenous art form, "bitterroot" has more fans in Europe than at home. But that's changing. Finally, this beautiful native genus (first collected by the Lewis & Clark expedition, hence the name) is getting some respect here, too. Although it's known as a great rock garden specimen, it's being rediscovered as a flowering potted plant, outdoors or in.
Lewisia is a small mounding alpine-type plant valued for its spring bloom. Requires good drainage for proper growth.
