Lewisia cantelovii

Common name Cantelow's lewisia
Family portulacaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers white or pale pink
Size 18"
Cultural notes well drained soil (not too dry)

Species endemic to the mountain ranges of northeastern California, where it grows in moist rocky sites. It appears on the California inventory of rare and endangered plants. The inflorescence grows taller than that of L. cotyledon, the only lewisia species we've successfully brought to flower in our garden. From online information, it appears the rosette is similar to that of other lewisias.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
