Porophyllum Saxifrages

These delightful little cushions, also referred to as Kabschia Saxifrages, flower right at the end of winter. A position with morning or very late afternoon sun is preferable. If your plants have been browning off on one side then they are getting too much midday sun - try shifting them to a cooler position. A limey soil which drains freely is recommended. You will find them ideal for planting in a shady trough or south-facing corner of your rock garden. Once planted, mulch the soil with a 1cm dressing of gravel chip.
