[fs.usda.gov] New species status, Habitat, Description: Kellogg's lewisia is now known from just one occurrence in the southern Sierra Nevada Range. Hutchison's lewisia occurs at seventeen sites ranging from the southern Cascade Range to the central Sierra Nevada. Its habitat is granitic gravel on ridge tops and flats between 5,100 and 7,000 feet elevation, sparsely vegetated by spindly Jeffrey pine and lodgepole pine woodlands, with patches of upland sedge (Carex sp.) and rock garden wildflowers. Although this plant is perennial and showy during its flowering period in late June, it shrivels up and disappears by late July until the next spring season. (link added by Mary Ann Machi)
