A real recommendation!
An English selection from the early 20th century (Whitehill Garden, Gloucestershire, UK), Saxifraga 'Whitehill' forms a dense cushion of silvery-blue rosettes of leaves with red-tinges at their base and produces white inflorescences in April-May.
Its great ornamental qualities were recognized with an Award of Garden Merit in 2003.
This is an alpine for a semi-shaded rockery, so we plant it preferably in a crevasse between stones and sheltered from high summer temperatures. For troughs, a gravel garden, alpine rockery or alpine greenhouse.
Grow in light shade (morning sun) in moist, alkaline, mineral soil. If you grow this encrusted saxifrage in pots, we recommend a mixture of 1/5 clay, 1/5 leaf compost, 3/5 drainage elements (5mm pozzolan, rough sand) + alkaline elements (lithothamnium, chalk). Protect the rosette from damp with a fine gravel mulch.
