LEWISIA COTYLEDON 'SUNSET STRAIN'
From attractive evergreen rosettes of succulent leaves, arise repeating sprays of large flowers which vary in colour from ivory tints and shades of yellow to deep pink and orange. Dead heading produces almost constant flowering. Exotic, tender-looking plants which are in fact bone-hardy and are perfect for the rockery or a container on the patio.
Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
