85+ What a charming little ground cover plant for cooler climates! Saxifraga seeds readily establish, and this perennial does well edging a border, spilling over a wall, or in containers. Often called Moss Saxifraga or Mossy Saxifrage, it forms a low evergreen mound of bright green leaves that bear short stems of small cup-shaped rose-pink flowers. Rose Mossy Saxifrage prefers cool growing conditions and does not tolerate drought or hot humid weather. In warmer zones, make sure it gets afternoon shade. Saxifraga care includes trimming back the stems once their flowers fade to neaten the ground cover plants, but no other trimming is needed during the year. Rose Saxifraga will self-seed but not to the point of crowding.
How To Grow Mossy Saxifrage: Sow Saxifraga seeds directly outdoors in either the fall or the spring. Prepare soil by loosening the top 1 - 2 inches and weeding. Saxifraga plants prefer well-draining soil, so amend soil if needed, adding sand or fine grit. The soil pH preferably should be mildly alkaline. Sow the Saxifraga ground cover seeds on the surface, lightly walking over the seeds to help make good contact with the soil. Keep the ground cover seeds constantly moist until germination occurs. Saxifraga plants like sun, but as they are germinating and establishing protect from direct sunlight.
