Mr Fortune's Saxifrage

Saxifraga fortunei is one of the most beautiful plants brought back by Robert Fortune (1812-1880) from his travels in Japan and China. It is an understory plant that forms a compact clump of thick, semi-evergreen leaves, which are topped in the autumn by tall panicles of indented flowers.

The Saxifraga fortunei 'Cheap Confections’ variety flowers joyously in hues of soft to candy pink and has round, apple-green leaves.

For a rock garden, understory or alpine greenhouse.

Grow in a moist spot, in partial or full shade in moist, well-drained, humus-rich soil. Saxifraga fortunei hates warm conditions, and soil that is heavy and damp in the winter.

If you grow it in pots and keep it sheltered from autumn rain the plant will flower fully.


  • plant in a medium of a mixture of good garden earth (1/4), 2-5 mm filter sand (1/4) and good leaf compost (1/2);
  • regularly trim any damaged leaves and mulch with mature compost at the end of winter
  • water to keep the soil moist in summer.
