SAXIFRAGES IN NE TURKEY?
« on: December 05, 2006, 06:29:57 PM »
I'm visiting NE Turkey in late April - early May 2007. We consider to go to the Palendoken Mts. and parts of the Pontic Alps.
Does anyone know good locations for saxifrages in NE Turkey?

I'm particularly interested in any information regarding the Porphyrion species Saxifraga artvinensis which, according to Webb and Gornall's Saxifrages of Europe, is closely related to Sax sancta but has white flowers...

On the subject of saxifraga. I just want to let Lawrence M know that the tumbling waters seed he sent me has germinated and is looking good. Many thanks. :)
