Lewisia longipetala 'Little Plum'
Lovely, small western native for a perfectly drained site. Lewisia (named for M. Lewis of Lewis and Clark) is a stunning perennial with fleshy, spatula-like leaves in tight rosettes. ‘Little Plum’ is much hardier and more tolerant of our eastern humidity than most Lewisias and bears pink flowers high above the foliage. Great around rocks, especially in crevices. Pink, salmon-tinged flowers appear between May and June.
