Yellow Tweedyi due to go to a nursery friend of mine - it had seeded all the way through the plunge in one of the alpine houses - they are just starting to green up -so need to be gone

has anyone got a strong well flowering pure White Lewisia tweedyi - mine just limps along from year to year - never produces many flowers and never seen any seed off it - all the other colours do well with me just the white plant I have never looks good?
