It's a long time since we grew Lewisia leeana and I know there wouldn't be any digital pix, but that one in bud looks pretty close!

Here are links to two large potfuls of Lewisia leeana alba, one winning a Farrer medal in England and one out for consideration for a Forrest medal in Aberdeen

Hi Stephen, You have Lewisia Little Plum and Little Peach as Ian said. Did you just buy Little peach? it flowers from seed in the first year but later than older plants. When settled they will both flower again in the autumn, great value plants and easier to grow outside than most Lewisias. Look out for new colours soon to be released  ;)

Many thanks, Maggi and Susan! Yes, I confused Peaches and Plums (must pay more attention!).

Yes, I bought Little Peach at a nursery in Northern Norway (as L. leeana).

As have I. Make sure you tell us more at the appropriate time Susan. Just don't tell the boss I'm considering another Lewisia or two :-X

Little Cherry would be good, especially if it were the very dark, crimson/black kind. :D

Just noticed this one in a place I have no record of putting it and it's gone from where I did put it ;D. Saw it was a Lewisia and guessed (don't know how  ;)) that it was Lewisia serrata - checked my notes and I see I had sown it in 2007 from SRGC seed... You'll probably now tell me it's a hybrid....

Sorry for the poor picture quality - poor light....

I think Saddle Mountain is in Oregon?

It doesn't appear that anyone has yet answered David's question, but the answer is yes, this particular Saddle Mountain is in Clatsop County, Oregon, in the Coast Range about 50 miles NW of Portland.  It is truly an amazing place.  You can get a bit of a sense of its geography by zooming in on Google Earth (the coordinates are  4558'07"N lat. and 12341'09"W long); the view in Google Earth looking from west to east is particularly cool because of the shadows in the most recent (August 15, 2005) imagery.

Nathan Miller wrote an article on Saddle Mountain in the fall 2008 issue of "Rock Garden Quarterly" that provides a nice overview. Also a plant list for the site can be found on-line at http://users.reachone.com/columbiacoastplants/documents/Saddle%20Mtn8-04.pdf.  I'd be happy to post some of my photos from a visit in late May if anyone would like to see them.
