This unusual Saxifraga is highly sought after for its fabulous autumnal display of nodding slightly shaggy pure white flowers that jive and jostle above small mounds of bright green fleshy foliage.

Introduced from Japan by the plant hunter Robert Fortune in 1863, it naturally grows in woodlands preferring a site in partial or deep shade and a humus-rich damp soil with some drainage.  It looks stunning shining out of the gloom in a woodland or shady area of the garden, effortlessly extending the season of interest in the garden plus adding contrasting texture.  In harsh winters it may need protection in colder areas.
