Description and General Information:

This species of Lewisia grows in seasonally damp to wet slopes, meadows and open aspen forests, often along streamsides, in the western American states of California, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, New Mexico, Utah, Washington and Oregon.  It occurs at elevations of 1300-3200 m.

Plants produce a rosette of fleshy, narrow, strap-like leaves 2-5 inches long.  Flowers are solitary but many are produced per plant.  They sit just above the foliage.  Individual flowers have 5-10 white or pink (in the form 'Rosea') petals. They are about 1.5 inches in diameter.  Plants often go dormant shortly after flowering.
