Saxifraga is a large genus of low-growing, mostly mounding for mat-forming plants, many of which are alpines more suited to the rock garden. Some leaves are variable in form and are of heavy substance, either smooth or hairy, with some forming rosettes. The flowers are usually five-petaled, cup or star shaped, white or in shades of pink and stand airly well above the foliage. Saxifrages are easy plants to grow and add a lot of interest when allowed to spread naturally into large colonies. Companion plants include ferns, hosta, primula, arisaema, geraniuma nd astilbe.
