I planted one of these years ago in an inhospitably dry spot and it slowly disappeared. This year I needed a low growing plant for the garage bed and thought I should try it again. These saxifrages spread slowly via runners, so I’m hoping the 3 plants will kindly fill the front edge of the planting area nicely. Saxifraga stolonifera’s fuzzy red and green appearance adds a nice texture the garden border, and in spring sends up an ethereal looking flowers that float high on thin stalks.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
