Saxifraga × arendsii ‘Purple Robe’

Mossy Saxifrage

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.475.930

The Mossy Saxifrage include a huge number of alpines. They are best sited in a partially shaded rock garden, wall garden or scree where they can cascade. This selection forms a low cushion of green leaves bearing short stems of upfacing, carmine-red flowers in spring. Requires a cool, moist location. Dislikes drought and hot, humid summer weather. Trim lightly after flowering to remove the flower stems. Adapts well to growing in clay pots or alpine troughs. Evergreen.
