Saxifraga × arendsii red form


Mossy Saxifrage

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.475.200


The Saxifrage include a huge number of alpines. This selection is a good choice for the partially shaded rock garden, wall garden or scree. Plants form a low cushion or mound of bright green leaves, bearing short stems of upfacing, cup-shaped red flowers in spring. Requires a cool, moist location. Dislikes drought and hot humid summer weather. Trim lightly after blooming to remove the flower stems. Adapts well to growing in clay pots or alpine troughs. A light top-dressing of sand right after flowering will help to keep the clumps tight and free from root-rot.
