Saxifraga stolonifera ‘Uchiwa'
A stunning form of the Japanese native Saxifraga stolonifera that was discovered in the wild in Japan by Cedric Basset. Compared with typical forms, it produces enormous leaves and its green base is highlighted by an intricate tracery of silver veins. It is also more vigorous and soon forms a solid mat of ground cover via fine, red stolons with little plantlets at the tips. In summer the plants are adorned with masses of beautiful, white, starry flowers. Height 20 cm. Moist, well-drained soil in part to full shade although the plant is tolerant of poor soils. Perfect for a spot in a shady rock or woodland garden and an excellent choice for underplanting or as a potted specimen.
