I have grown Lewisia before, but mine died, probably because I didn't give it good enough drainage, which is essential. They also like full sun. I think if you give it those 2 things you'll do fine.

Hmmm.. so HOW much drainage is considered good drainage? We have clay soil.. ick. But I can put it in pots or in my perennial garden.. lol Is this a perennial or an annual.. it is sooo pretty. I have never seen anything like it.. and those colors.. wow.. they just POP!

I tried to find some info online, but all I kept getting was links to more ebay auctions.. rspb Can someone direct me to some good info on these? I really want to buy them... *itchy fingers* lol
