LEWISIA LONGIPETALA x COTYLEDON 'LITTLE PEACH'
Originally bred here 30 years ago, this gorgeous lewisia is a fertile hybrid of Lewisia longipetala and Lewisia cotyledon, which has soft peach flowers blended with pinks and orange over attractive, dark green, evergreen leaves. Hardy and very resistant to over watering or winter rotting. Few fertile seeds collected.
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.
