Saxifraga 'Whitehill' is a garden hybrid that is said to be a cross between S. paniculata and S. cochlearis. It is surely one of the most beautiful of the encrusted saxifraga. Its blue-gray leaves are heavily lime-encrusted around their margins. They are also toothed along their edges. And they have a pronounced red purple blotch at their bases. Even though the rosettes are small - just over an inch wide - the evergreen rosettes are eye-catching and the plant produces plenty of off-sets. We grow this in a trough-like container with an inch-thick layer of 1/4-ten gravel as a top-dressing.

Early summer.  1 in. x 8 in.
