    Hi luck, found this in Google


    Propagating Lewisia is done by digging up the fleshy tap root in either spring or fall and dividing and re-planting it in a 50% sharp sandy soil that is well draining. Its leaves remind one of hens and chicks but it blooms are profuse and colors vary depending upon the variety and range from red, pink, white, apricot, yellow and orange. Blooms will last from late spring well into the summer in cool zones in full sun, but prefer partial shade in warmer zones. It prefers a moist soil, slightly acidic, in the spring but will withstand drought conditions in summer. Great for filling in holes in stone walls. Most varieties are small in height, from 3" and up and is evergreen in warmer climates and deer tend to avoid the plant.
