Description

Height x Spread: 25cm x 40cm

Commonly known as 'true London pride', it bears graceful, pale pink star-like flowers on stems that stand tall above a spreading mat of evergreen rosettes with leaves like scalloped, glossy spoons.

This Saxifraga is a real gem for the garden. Its foliage is quite architectural and has so many potential uses, including underplanting roses and deciduous shrubs to hide their bare stems, edging a path, or as ground cover. Highlight its airy beauty by planting it in containers, or in a gravel or rock garden when it will easily hold its own. Low maintenance and easy to grow in any soil with drainage and some moisture, it prefers a partial shade
