Saxifraga (Non-succulent Saxifrage)

The genus Saxifrage is a very diverse genus with a wide range of semiperennial to perennial plants, covering some 480 species in total. Saxifrages can be found from the greater part of the temperate and sub-arctic zones of the northern hemispheres with some "exotic" outposts in Ethiopia, Mexico and the Arctic region. Several species which naturally occur in moist, humus-rich soils in partially shaded to sunny open spots in woodlands and subalpine meadows are non-succulent and develop sometimes very broad leaves and impressively tall flowering stalks, while others are excellent ground covering plants. This group of Saxifrage is best grown in a humus rich, always slightly moist soil in a partially shaded or sunny spot in the rock garden.
Sow the tiny, dust-like seeds very flat on a humus-rich, preferably slightly sandy soil from early spring to mid summer. Do not cover seeds with soil and keep pots in partial shade. Always water from beneath and keep pots sheltered from heavy rains so that seeds will not be dispersed. Transplant young plants in early spring as soon as seedlings are strong enough.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
