Rich yellow mango flowers.
This Lewisia actually works better in a semi-shaded area as the petals fade in sunlight. To get the rich Mango colour its best to keep away from intense sunny positions where it will be a pale yellow flower. Fully hardy this will grow ideally in an alpine rock garden or container.
