Saxifraga paniculata f. rosea is a pink flowered form of this more commonly white-flowered species. (We have been told that this pink form is from Bulgaria.) We grow this in a rockery and in a large shallow container where it forms a small mound or mat consisting of gray green rosettes. Each rosette is composed of fleshy, linear leaves that are encrusted with lime along their toothed margins. In early summer, individual rosettes send up much branched panicles with showy flowers. We give it exceptional drainage by adding gravel to our planting medium and also applying a nice top-dressing of gravel.

Early summer.  6 in. x 10 in.
