The 'Purple Saxifrage' is found in many mountainous areas, including the UK. It is one of the first alpines to flower in spring with close, tight mats literally covered in hundreds of pink flowers. This is a strong, robust clone with larger leaves and is one of the easiest to grow.
It grows well here in our cool, slightly moist climate and that is what it likes - it dislikes hot, dry conditions. If you are in the south or east of the country it might do better lightly shaded from the heat of the sun and kept permanently moist but well-drained. Only 5cm (2") high and ideal for growing in a stone trough.
