Saxifraga paniculata 'Punctata' (syn. 'Freckles')



Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
One of the many forms of Saxifraga paniculata from the mountains of Europe. We received this with the name of 'Freckles' but find no reference to this name in the various sources where if it were valid, it would be listed. Therefore we assume it is a synonym of 'Punctata' as both refer to the heavy sprinkling of red dot on the petals of the white flowers. Excellent trough or rock garden plant and wouldn't mind a little shade during the hottest blaze of the day although we grow ours in full sun but never let them dry out.
