Cultivar Notes - 'Little Plum'
Purple/pink blossoms open with a hint of orange above leathery lanceolate foliage. Long-flowering. 'Little Plum' is a hybrid that is prized for its compact habit and heavy blooming ability.
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.
