As you can see Maggie, Saxifraga paniculata var. minutifolia here together with Sax. cochlearis 'Minor' in our tufa garden are spectacular cushions and very attractive all year.
Besides this both species are flowering abundant every summer and without any problem. I should be a must for every rock garden.
