USDA Zones: 4-9

The Saxifrage include a huge number of alpines. This selection falls among those that are best tackled by the more advanced gardener, best sited in a partially shaded rock garden, wall garden or scree. Plants form a low cushion or mound of bright golden-yellow leaves, bearing short stems of upfacing, cup-shaped white 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.
