Description

You’ll see Mossy Saxifrage everywhere in window boxes as you walk through towns or cities in winter. Saxifrages can be so ubiquitous, it’s easy to feel snooty about them, but don’t. This would be one of my desert island winter into spring container plants — performing brilliantly on zero TLC.

Care Tips

Cushion-forming, evergreen perennials are ideal for containers, rock gardens or ground cover at the front of a border. Ensure good drainage. Cut back after flowering.
