Saxifraga stolonifera 'Harvest Moon'


Availability : Available

Description :

A rare botanical colour

Saxifraga stolonifera is native to the woodlands of southeast Asia (Japan, Korea) and of this genus is one of the most sensitive to the cold.

It is evergreen in zones 8 to 12, deciduous but hardy in zone 7 where a well-established plant can regrow from its roots in the spring.

We owe the superb Saxifraga stolonifera 'Harvest Moon' to the Terra Nova Nursery (Oregon, USA).

Although introduced in 2000 it's a shame that we only rarely see it offered at plant fairs.

It has unusual ochre foliage with a purple underside and white flowers on drooping panicles 30 - 40 cm in length.

Its long, creeping stolons give it a ground cover effect a bit like a strawberry plant.

In a rockery or border edge we like to combine Saxifraga stolonifera 'Harvest Moon' with Heuchera 'Caramel' or a grass such as Carex testacea 'Prairie Fire'. Three foliage plants of exceptional quality with colours that go well together and the same growing needs.

Grow in partial shade or in the sun - but not scorching - in humus-rich, moist, well drained soil. Grows well in pots.
