I know, Martin, aren't they lovely? ... all the pix but DS' ones on them in their natural habitat are just glorious.

Not up to Michael's standard or indeed to Martin's show plants but pretty nonetheless.

Lewisia cotyledon, an apricot/pink form grown from seed some years ago.
L. cotyledon 'Snowstorm'
L. cotyledon var. howellii
L. cotyledon Sunset Strain a nice magenta

Thanks Martin, I don't seem to be able to get them to good sized plants though.

Very nice David, I like that  apricot/pink  :)
I find they do better in plastic pots, but you have to be more careful with the watering can.

Thanks for that Michael, I think you're right about the plastic pots and that is what I shall do when I re-pot them.
