David,

I will post some photos of our wild Lewisias when I get a chance. In the Salmon Mountains I've seen Lewisia cotyledon growing by the thousands in the forest duff, not the site one would except! There are other species local to our area.

I never get to Eastern Washington these days to see the L. tweedyi.  :'(

Luc,

Very nice red Lewisia. What sort of blooming season do you have with your climatic conditions?

Thanks Robert !
Actually, it's flowering extremely early this year because of the "warm" winter we had - normally it would be flowering mid-May

Luc,

Our winter has been very mild too, with many plants blooming much sooner than average.

A yellow cotyledon grown from Ashwood yellow seed sown 15/10/13 and Lewisia congdonii which is quite tall growing and difficult to photograph

Yes,  with taller stems and little flowers it will be a challenge to photograph Lewisia congdonii well.
Nice thing, though.

just found this thread, love the lemon tweedyii. I have a white one from seed first time flowering plus a rosea. Managed to lose all the buds on my typical plant, must have got it too dry I guess.

A few more Lewisias:

1. A nice orange-yellow L. cotyledon.

2. Lewisia cotyledon heckneri. Typical flower coloration for L. cotyledon. The foliage is a bit different.

3. Lewisia cantelovii is a local endemic growing in the Yuba River and Feather River canyons on north facing cliff faces. I remember gather seed of the plant photographed on the South Fork of the Yuba River. The river was way down there!

I acquired this as L. nevadensis but it looks very like your pygmaea. I believe they do hybridise. Should I correct my label?
Thanks

In a word...Yes. Looks like L. pygmaea to me as well. L nevadensis is white, unless of course you get the 'rosea' form, and in both cases the flowers are bigger and held upright.

Okay here we go -

Lewisia 'Archangel' - very dainty

Lewisia 'Goulds Hybrid' - my favourite lewisia - the flower spikes are quite tall but it is a copper/yellow colour with red veins - it could have done with a little shade which intensify's the colour

Lewisia 'George Henley' - this is just hanging on at the moment so only showing the flower

Exquisite aren't they, Roma?  Real stars of a genus which has a lot of goodies.

Lewisia columbiana 'Alba'. A 'rangy' little plant and not easy to photograph in the whole.

Two variations of yellow L. cotyledon from Ashwood yellow seed.

L. cotyledon from Ashwood red seed.
