Description :

A last flower before the winter.

The Saxifraga fortunei genus is native to woodland in Japan, China, and Korea. It was first described in 1863 and named in honour of the great Scottish traveller and botanist Robert Fortune (1812 - 1880).

It was introduced into gardens in the West in the 19th century. Saxifraga forms a clump of tough, succulent leaves and produces incomparable flowering in October and November.

This shade-loving plant can withstand summer drought. We take advantage of its joyful flowering to brighten up shady spots under shrubs or other gloomy, neglected corners of the garden. How about that?

Successful combinations with Epimedium, Pulmonaria, Helleborus orientalis, Asplenium scolopedrium, Ophiopogon.

Collector-gardeners may prefer to grow this saxifrage in pots in an alpine greenhouse or on a north-facing window sill to make the best of its flowers out of the autumn rain.

Saxifraga fortunei 'Beni Tsukasa' produces a myriad of blood red star flowers.

Avoid planting where there can be competition from other roots and in a shady spot with good garden soil enriched with peat and/or mature compost.

Adding rough sand will improve drainage of the humus-rich mix and, as a result, will help the plant withstand excessive damp and the winter cold.
