Bitterroot

Bitterroot
Bitterroot, Lewisia rediviva, is one of our most spectacular wildflowers. Blooming in rocky and dry areas its leafless flower stems with their huge blossoms in shades of pink and white seem to appear like magic from the ground. The name "rediviva" meaning "restored to life" refers to this. These were photographed along the Ray Westburg trail on Manastash Ridge in eastern Washington.

"Porzellanroeschen" , as is our trade name for the Lewisias, are really pretty. But knowing the climate where Lewisias grow, I am very concearned about them kept in bavarian subalpine rock gardens. Just an other candidate for fence jumping, or won't they?

This one is probably very difficult to keep in cultivation, since it's needs are so specific and wouldn't be a problem, but some of the other Lewisias might. Went to see an orchid the other day, Epipactris hellebroine, which is from Europe and which has "jumped fence" and is all over the USA and Canada now. We saw it in Michigan earlier in the summer and now it's blooming all over a state park along the coast south of us.
