i bought two of them (Auilegia Alpina and the Tellow Queen) as I did not grew them from seeds before but I did last year and I find them very easy to grow that way. All the other ones are from last year seeds. Something is eating the foliage on some of them. Do this happen to you Lynn? Somebody told me that I should not put any in the garden as they attract a parasite but I do not remember which one.

I have them all over my gardens Catherine and have no problems with pest or disease.
It could be slugs eating them.

Thank you Lynn. I feel better as I love them even if they dont last very long.
Here is another plant I wanted to dig out to move iit and this was impossible...I had to mind the roots of a rose but the plant seems to be stuck to the ground, it is a Tradescantia x andersoniana 'Leonora' . I like the blue of the flowers but I dont like the fact to be unable to move it.

Penstemon are hardy here Lynn so I am lucky as not too far from here they are not hardy. Thank you for your confirmation about the Tradescantia.

Catherine does the well still have water in it? I would love to be able to sit beside it. It is beautiful.

Yes Lynn, the well has water inside and mosquitos above sometimes during the summer. It is an important spot for me as I only water the plants with water from the well.

Hi Lynn
Love these plants. I had some but lost them. Don't remember how. Are they hardy ones or not? I love this rosette foliage and so many stems growing out from it. Looking at your pictures it is the third I like the best. On the previous flowers look like the ones of a Dianthus. Could we have closer shots of the flowers and the foliage please Lynn?

Thank you Catherine. : ) I love the Lewisias. They really need very good drainage and not full sun. Morning sun is good or filtered sun, like under a tree.
