Saxifraga are annuals, biennials, evergreen or herbaceous perennials with stunning lobed leaves and small, attractive star or round-shaped flowers. Stems are slender and contrasts nicely to bright flowers and deep green foliage. They are best suited to flower beds and borders within cottage, informal and courtyard garden settings. You should expect to see Saxifraga grow to an approximate height of 50cm (20”) and a spread of 1m (40”).
Saxifraga are best suited to moist, well-drained soil of sand, chalk, clay or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of full shade or part shade. Dig a hole that will accommodate the depth and width of your plant. You may wish to amend the planting area with a generous amount of organic matter and mix thoroughly. Water well once in place to settle the surrounding soil.
Saxifraga are easy to care for and are low maintenance. They like moist soil and should be watered thoroughly during periods of drought. Saxifraga does not require a strict pruning regime but you may wish to provide a trim if it starts to look unsightly or to retain its size.
It is possible to propagate Saxifraga by division during spring.
