    This encrusted saxifrage makes a tight mat of very small compact rosettes which have silver-edged, dark-green leaves, and arching, dividing stems that bear sprays of pure white flowers in summer. It comes from the mountains of central and southern Europe, where it lives on limestone screes and rocks, and will do best if grown in tufa, but if in the open garden, it is best kept out of full sun. ...

    Making an impressive show when it flowers, this rarely-seen plant makes rosettes of linear, lime-encrusted, silvery-grey leaves, from which erupt large arching stems carrying congested panicles of starry white flowers. AGM winner ... Learn More



    This rare mossy saxifrage, restricted to the Cevennes region of Southern France, makes an exceptionally tight, dark green "mossy" dome, completely covered in yellow-eyed white flowers in spring. ... Learn More



    In early summer, from a dense, solid cushion consisting of compact evergreen rosettes of spoon-shaped, mid-green leaves with lime-encrusted margins, arise dense hairy sprays of rounded, sometimes red or yellow-spotted, white flowers in early summer. It performs well in a moderately fertile, very well drained scree or rockery. ... Learn More



    Tall, arching sprays of white flowers, all attractively speckled in crimson, appear in summer on this low alpine plant which forms rosettes of evergreen leaves up to 20 centimetres across. Leaves are tongue-shaped and beaded but not toothed, rosettes being arranged rather like sempervivums. Although it does best in a partly-shaded rock garden, it is especially happy when growing in crevices between rocks. Planting at the top of a rock wall will allow the flower sprays to arch over and show to their best advantage, and they also do well in troughs or container gardens. Clumps are easily divided in early spring. ... Learn More



    Dense mats of medium sized, unusually narrow, lime-encrusted, silvery rosettes erupt with red-stemmed Inflorescences, 12-24cm high carrying branched panicles of small starry flowers with long yellowish-white petals. These superb alpines grow on the Eastern Alps, including the Dolomites, and also in northern Yugoslavia on limestone rocks. ... Learn More



    Masses of small yellow star-shaped flowers arise in spring and early summer on a low shiny cushion of tiny, rounded, succulent, heart-shaped leaves. They are special because, unlike most other saxifrages, they self-seed gently into cracks where very few other plants will grow or establish and, very much like erinus, rarely becomes a nuisance, ...

    A tight rosette of silver encrusted leaves give way to a bright red flowering stem, which arises like a dragon's head from the blood-red-centred rosette, bearing sprays of pink flowers. The colony of rosettes will slowly expand to make a mounded stunning effect. These plants do best in a well drained soil in a trough or rock garden. ... Learn More



    This rare, bone-hardy, enigmatic, but vigorous plant forms a rosette of coarsely-toothed, kidney-shaped leaves, from which, in August, arise several stems bearing "night-sky" sprays of starry, dark purple-maroon flowers. It comes from partly shady wet spots, at the sides of streams and ravines on Japan's northern island, Hokkaido. Also on, Honshu, on the road from Takayama to Matsumoto! ... Learn More



    This fully hardy, perennial evergreen alpine opens its sprays of pink-eyed white flowers on thin hairy stems in late spring and early summer. Basal rosettes of rounded, spoon-like leaves, toothed at the edges, form most attractive slowly expanding carpets. ... Learn More



    This is by far the most spectacular of all of the 'encrusted saxifrages', the rosettes, growing for several years, reaching nearly a foot across. They then send up a massive stem producing a huge waterfall of white flowers, and then the plant dies! A sensible option is to maintain a constant succession of plants of increasing sizes so as to always have one flowering each summer. This impressive plant is endemic to the Pyrenees, the mountains of eastern Spain and also the Atlas Mountains from about 700-2400 metres. It is relatively easy to grow from seed, only needing good drainage to do well in the rock garden.. ... Learn More



    This species is an odd-one-out among the 'encrusted saxifrages', the rosettes being deep green without the white encrusted margins which are usually typical of this group, and the flower stems produce really unusual yellow to orange flowers with long thin petals, rather than white ones. The plants usually grow tiny rosettes before the large rosette dies, and they do best in partial shade, growing readily in cultivation and coming true from seed. They are native to limestone regions of the Alps and Carpathian Mountains, Italy, Switzerland and Romania. ... Learn More



    This hardy, "encrusted" type of Saxifrage, native to the United States, forms neat, tight rosettes of evergreen, dark-green, silvery edged, narrow leaves, and sprouts 15cm high stems bearing sprays of white flowers in April and May. Plants achieve best results in well-drained soil in a sunny position. ... Learn More



    This diminutive mat-forming, evergreen perennial bears small, dense rosettes of tiny, oval to oblong, lime-encrusted, silvery grey-green leaves and slender, red-flushed stems, bearing narrow, flat sprays of cup-shaped, white flowers in late spring and early summer. Perhaps one of the best 'encrusted saxifrages' the silver rosettes are very tiny and densely packed. A really choice alpine making a wonderful trough plant or for chinking into rock crevices. ...

    Striking, reddish, hairy stems hold clusters of nodding, bright purplish-red flowers above rosettes of grey-green, lime-encrusted leaves which in time produce impressive hummocks. Best grown in an alpine house or in a scree or rock garden, this lovely gem is found throughout the mountains of Balkans and Turkey. ... Learn More
