very attractive saxifrage everyone. I love the diminutive nature of the plant with lots and lots of flowers.

That's quite a saxifrage collection! The perfect domes they form are very beautiful.



...that said I also love the way saxifrages will mould their shape to their surroundings in a crevice garden, as they often do in the wild. Here is Saxifraga oppositifolia, one of my favourites.

That looks so natural & happy Tristan.
Here it is in N Sweden, usually among rocks but sometimes in more open ground on lateral morraine:

Another week and another batch of saxifrages coming into their own.  Weve been blessed with wonderful weather on the Black Isle this year:

Wonderful views of Sues greenhouse and fantastic saxifrages - one day Ill maybe manage to reach that standard!  Definitely something to aspire to.  In the meantime, a few more from my more modest collection:

Good growing, Cheers, Alan

Great to see such wonderfully grown Saxifrages.
I built a tufa crevice garden in 2015, planted it with Saxifrages and there is lots in flower right now.

Thanks for your comments Hermann.  They grow slowly in tufa but nice and tight.
Here's a couple more images:

Saxifrages really look great in tufa.

These are in my dry stone wall and really brighten it up. I must remember to plant more in the autumn (doing it now is unlikely to succeed as we are entering the driest part of the year).

This seems to be a white mutation of 'Gregor Mendel'

Pictures of Saxifraga oppositilfolia - from SRGC President Julia Corden

Julia says " Saxifraga oppositifolia in all its glory, the best show Ive seen it do in this location in 18 years. You dont even have to get out of the car as the Cliff is right by the road 😊. Highland Perthshire "
