Saxifraga paniculata is found mostly in Europe but this selection of the species is from the North American population which was once thought to be a separate species. Measuring less than 2 inches in width, the evergreen rosettes are lime-encrusted along their margins. Leaf-margins are lightly toothed. Although the narrow leaves of this species are said to be blunt at the tip, our form is rounded and comes to a pointed tip. The flowering stems vary in height from 3 to 12 inches. We grow this in a shallow container with an inch-layer of 1/4-inch gravel.

Early summer.  1 in. x 8-10 in.
