I do indeed David. A couple haven't flowered yet but 6 are the same as yours above and the remaining 2 have flowered pure white! This pleases me as the two commercial whites I have and I assume are seed raised, have given me no seed at all. Both yours have seed starting.

I also had half a dozen seeds on the two plants I bought at the Trillium weekend in October, of tweedyi 'Ashford Yellow.' 1 seed up so far.

Gorgeous, David. Such a luscious colour, it looks almost edible.  8)

Very nice David. Just as well I have the few seeds of the yellow as the two plants have recently died I see. My fault, they became overgrown. >:(

One of my favourites David !  :)

This is Lewisia tweedyi - lemon form - in full flower, but it suffered from rain and even hail over the last weeks...

I like the lemon form. My 'Ashford Yellow' (now deceased) was slightly less lemon and closer to a goldy shade. Well worth growing from different sources.

Franz, I don't believe you. ;D

Very nice Luc. I'm hoping to pay a visit to Ashwood Nursery in the next few weeks and have a shopping list longer than my arm with a Yellow tweedyi in top spot.

My Lewisia are probably a little later than some as they have to wait in their winter quarters, under covered shelving outdoors, until there is room to bring them into the greenhouse. Lewisia pygmaea is the smallest I have and even looks lost in a 3" pot, still very pretty though.
