A superb little plant, a dwarf form of 'London Pride' (Saxifraga x urbium). An easy plant to grow but also small, and attractive and exceedingly useful, thriving in difficult places in the garden. The small rosettes of green leaves will form a pad of fresh green and the little pink-white flowers appear on red stems in May. Even the red stems are colourful after flowering. About 20cm tall when flowering.
London Pride - back before LGBTQ celebrations and the strong ale with the same name - was a common garden plant on the often narrow gardens and borders lining London's streets. The larger London Pride would withstand the dirt and pollution of London's streets and would grow where little else would - sun, shade or dry - this plant would thrive.
This dwarf form was named after the famous alpine grower who ran Six Hills Nursery. He was also a plant hunter and garden designer.
