Saxifraga 2021

(1/9) > >>

A couple of pictures of saxifrages from the rockery. They are perennial, long-lived, attractive and easy, so it's important to take care not to have a rockery that ends up with these and nothing else! Looking at the dates they are about a week later than last year.

Saxifraga sancta. This has made a lovely patch over the years but it now needs to have its spread curtailed to prevent it overwhelming other things.

A S. burseriana clone I bought at the joint show in Kendal in 2016 (our daughter who was 7 at the time picked it). As sometimes happens in tufa areas it didn't really take and languished for a couple of years before I dismantled and rebuilt the rockery around it. Now it's thriving and has approximately doubled in size in the last year.
