Saxifraga paniculata var. minutifolia is sometimes listed as Saxifraga paniculata var. baldensis. It is the tiniest of the encrusted saxifrages that we grow with rosettes measuring no more than 3/8-inch in width. The blue green leaves are lime-encrusted near their tips and the rosette is more compact with tighter leaves than many of the other species. The short bloom spikes are about 2 to 3 inches in height bearing a scattering of starry white flowers. Grow this in a rockery, trough or container where you can montior it. Make sure to use a gritty mix. We top-dressed our container with an inch of 1/4-ten gravel and grow it with morning light with protection from the hottest sun.

Early summer.  1 in. x 6 in.
