I bought a lovely pink Lewisia in bloom just over a week ago. Within a couple of days the flowers had all closed. It's in a mostly sunny spot and sheltered from wind by other plants. What's wrong?



Have you planted it out, Arbuthnot, in which case it could be in shock, or is it still in the pot in which case I would say that it was well into its flowering season when you bought it and that is it for this year. Generally Lewisia do quite well for our annual alpine show at the end of April.

Thank you, Bulb. Yes, I did plant it out so you're probably right. It looked so pretty so was an impulse buy but I didn't know they only flowered for such a short time. I'll see what happens next year.

Thanks again.
