Set B2 - Wild Flowers - card information

4. Tufted Saxifrage
(Saxifraga cĪspitosa L.)

4. Tufted Saxifrage

As a British wild plant the tufted saxifrage is quite rare and is eagerly sought by botanists on the mountains of Scotland and North Wales. In old plants the foliage forms a compact cushion from which the flowering stems arise during May and June. Their maximum height is about three inches and each stem carries about one or two small white five-petalled flowers.
