One of a kind
The Saxifraga genus has several species suitable for growing in a rockery or alpine greenhouse.
Saxifraga exarata subps. moschata 'Cloth of Gold' or mossy saxifrage has exceptional evergreen foliage in soft golden rosettes and a domed habit, 10 cm in height and 25 cm in width. One of a kind in the huge Saxifraga genus.
For scree, alpine rockery, alpine greenhouse.
Grows very well in alpine troughs or in half-buried terracotta pots.
Grow in partial to full shade in fertile, humus-rich, well-drained garden soil.
A useful tip: Saxifraga 'Cloth of Gold' hates warm, humid summers which can encourage the development of botrytis blight and conversely also dislikes drought.
So this is plant that needs a more experienced gardener. ;-)
