Growing Saxifraga (Saxifrage)

Latin Name Pronunciation: sax-ih-frag’uh

Saxifraga is a genus of almost 450 species of mountain dwellers that are prized for their mat-forming growing habit. Their early-spring flowers create compact mounds of color that sit atop the foliage. Great for rock gardens, containers, and the edge of border plantings.

Give plants a location in full sun or partial shade and evenly moist but well-drained soil.
