Help me identify this plant. Bought them last year from bunnings. Type of succulent. They just keep flowering. Lovely sprays of pink and white. Also a lighter pink available as well

Yes I was very surprised as well with the flowers. I just keep cutting off the dead heads. I grow mine in a polystyrene tub that I got from local groceries, they through them out. Painted it black and it looks great and much cheaper than buying proper pots

You often see them in alpine tubs on UK gardening shows so it must be the perfect format for them 😊 I keep meaning to try hypertuffa-ing my PS tubs to see if I can make them look like fake stone troughs! 😀

Thx. It's funny when looking at them in the pot they just look average but in the foto they look like someone else's plants. So colourful and lush. Unfortunately my light orange one doesn't flower as profusely as the pink and white ones

Hash tags are a great way to group photos by topic and/or subject matter. Anyone can start a hashtag or add to one. Simply place a # ahead of any word or phrase you want to create or add to. Hashtags can be fun!! 😊 But mainly tags are useful when doing a search for something, including admin who use them at times to compile posts/collages. 😊

So if you click on the #lewisia hashtag you'll see examples of what others have posted.
