I lost the flower tags for this flower, only about half of the flowers I have planted are surviving I just want to know what the name is so I can do more research.
Thanks!

Welcome!

Lewisia cotyledon. They are succulents native to the mountains of Northern California, Southern Oregon and Idaho. I grow them very successfully but, in my cactus garden.

Awesome thanks so much for the fast replies! I'm assuming they're probably not doing so hot do to getting too much water! Hopefully they do okay in Wisconsin we will see.

Welcome to the site, they do best in a sharp draining planting spot, I grow mine in a mixture of 1 part compost, 2 part pea gravel and 2 part play sand. They also enjoy a sunny location.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

That's the oddball out of the mix. The rest are orange/pink but, for some reason, that one is white. Hilarious!
