8 Silver (encrusted) Saxifraga plants, all different.
We are proud of how we grow our Saxifragas, slow and hard in a loam compost with a generous amount of grit around the plants.
We can offer a good selection of 8 plants from our range, all different and all labelled. Our choice of the best/most suitable available at the time of ordering.
Commonly known as 'silver' or encrusted Saxifrages from the little deposits of lime that naturally accumulate on the leaves causing their silvery appearance which are enough of an attraction in themselves. But these are flowering plants too - typically long stems of white flowers (occasionally red or pink) and often with eye-catching markings on the petals. OurSaxifraga pageshows our entire range. We may include Saxifraga 'Winifred Bevington' - it's not strictly speaking a 'silver' but is similar and enjoys the same conditions. And it's a favourite of ours.
All are very hardy and simply require a gritty, free-draining soil and an open position to give their best.
This collection would make an excellent introduction to growing these lovely plants and could make an attractive feature on its own, perhaps planted in a stone trough or on a raised bed.
