Some Saxes
« on: April 14, 2010, 03:57:00 PM »
What are these?  Two different types, one slightly bluer than the other.  They aren't what I thought when I bought them.  Probably hybrids.

Good question. Hybrids of S. stribrynii perhaps?

One was supposed to be 'Allendale Beauty' and I think the other one was an Allendale cultivar also.  Clearly not.  S. stribrny looks close.  There seem to be several similar species in the same series.

The slighly bluer is Saxifraga sempervivum and the other two are hybrids with S. sempervivum.

Thanks.  That's one of the related species I was looking at, but I wasn't sure how to reliably tell several of them apart.
