Cliff Maiden

image via la paisajista

  Lewisia cotyledon a evergreen perennial alpine, also known as "Cliff Maiden" is a native to Oregon and California.  Only 12" in height, it flowers from spring to summer, producing as many as 50 flowers on one stem. Given sun and a well drained location, this tiny treasure works well in most rock and succulent gradens.

  4. I am going to try and find this to plant around our water feature. It will be so striking. We live in Washington State, the dry desert side of the mountains and I think this will do very well here.
