Red Lewisia Bloom
These California Natives are from the Siskiyous, and range into OR, WA and ID too, maybe. They have a deliciously edible root, called Bitter Root. It’s not so delicious after all.
They grow in rocky soils, and can’t ever sit in water. They can handle heavy winter floods rushing past them.
The flowers come in every color. Striped and solid. Some are even practically plaid. This is a very dark red bloom that you don’t see very often.
