This form of Saxifrage is one of the easiest to grow. Plants form a low clump of dark-green leathery leaves, arranged in rosettes like a Hen-and-Chicks, spreading slowly to form a thick mat. Stems of airy pale-pink flowers appear in late spring. Best seen when grown in a partly shaded rock garden, alpine trough or other container. Clumps are easily divided in early spring or late summer. Will tolerate heavy shade, but fallen leaves should be removed to avoid smothering the plants in winter. Evergreen.
