Saxifraga oppositifolia
« on: April 19, 2008, 09:34:38 PM »
Newbie here.  Spring is VERY late in Newfoundland compared to Europe.  There is still snow in my garden but the first alpine bloomed in my trough yesterday.  Hit 16 C yesterday...snowing today!   But this sax is a trooper!

A very warm welcome to the Forum, Todd. You may be newly arrived here, but your reputation in our plant world precedes you!  8)
I will move this topic to the Saxifraga section, to keep the saxxy subjects together.

Thanks Maggi....I realized after I posted that there was a Saxifrage section.  I have a modest collection, so may set up residence in that forum!  Thanks for the welcome!

Oh boy is this forum in for a treat !!!!
Todd will give Cliff a run for his money with his superb photos. Arguably (although I won't be arguing), two of the best plant photographers around.
Welcome Todd......looking forward to seeing more of your contributions
