Plantfinder works if you search for 'Prince Hal' rather than 'Prinz Hal'.

Maggi - I reckon that's where I got all those years ago.  Used to visit the nursery when we went to Scunny to visit my brother.  Back then it was Potterton & Martin....

Sax. oppositifolia in a sink.  I think the reason it's done this well over 20 years in the same location is down to the hyper tufa coating on the Belfast sink.

And how. I've begun to have kindred feelings with ducks! Having said that it's the poor folks who live on the Somerset levels I feel sorriest for.

Very nice saxes Chris - we've always struggled with these in the dry south-east but aim to go and see the collection at Waterperry and grow more in future years. Encouraging to see strong clumps of 'Prince Hal' over 20 years old. We are promised two more large Butler troughs so may devote one to saxifrages.

Sax. Tromso mentioned by Robert Rolfe in his bit about Sax. Breeding.  One of Karel Lang's cultivars.
