Here's a common one (rescued from B & Q for 50 cent!)

It was planted outside last autumn in one of the troughs and seems to have sailed through one of our wettest winters. Never covered or anything.

Co. Limerick, Ireland. Zone: 8. Height. 172m. Lowest temp: Dec. 2010. -14C. Wet maritime climate.

Some piccies but not of plants.

Why do you think it's a long shot and not very high definition, the crap is just out of sight in the foreground and the mess on the far bench is suitably out of focus. Who says the camera never lies ;)

And you've got it badly Martin. ;D Is there a Lewisias Anonymous group? David N probably needs to think about that too. :)

Watch it!, Maggi.  :P ;D

Actually I have just got the cure, I have only about 15 Lewisias left in the greenhouse and a few in the garden. :P

Is it a cure though, Michael... or simply a remission?

Definitely a cure Maggi. Anyone got a cure for Daphne  or Hepatica addiction?  :)

All I can say Michael is that Lewisias are probably a cheaper addiction!

What the heck Martin, this whole Country is broke anyway so I might as well join the club, at least I will have something nice  to look at and the Government is unlikely to take them from me , but then the way things are going here at the moment you would  never know. :P
