Thanks Maggi, David, Luc.  I can't resist showing more pictures.  The three pink ones together then the pale pink with the two whites followed by three individual flowers.

So much variation when you look at them closely and all together like that. Beautiful plants, Roma.

This Lewisia columbiana did very well this year.
The plant must be 12 or 13 years old and has lost rosettes that rotted off in the past, but it recovers every time and this is the result.

Oh wow Luc, I have a little one of these in the rock garden. I hope it does half as well as yours.
