I hope I can keep a few of them going for another year or two.  Getting them to first flowering is not too difficult but I've not managed to keep any longer than another one or two years.

Just a note to say that despite being in mid-winter, Lewisias are still performing well in Tasmania!
Not tweedyi, but very welcome. These are amazing plants.

I agree, Neil  super plants and one which will give you winter flowers is especially welcome, eh?

That lemon one with the satinwhite edge is a pretty one.

Welcome Miro. Are Lewisia plants regularly available in Spain or do have to grow from seed?

 Thank you

They are not very popular in Spain.
But I ordered them in a garden center.
I brought them to order from the Netherlands.
I  have also a lot of  them to grow from seed.
