Saxifraga

Saxifrages like moist semi shaded and shaded conditions - although not waterlogged. They are a group of Autumn flowering perennials with fleshy leaves and lots of small splendid flowers held above the leaves in rather lovely clouds. Even when not in flower Saxifrages can make a stunning ground cover or planting at the front of a border.
