I'd give my eyeteeth for an oppositifolia that would grow like that. It's a real beauty, Todd.

All are lovely - the media is particularly nice. I'll hopefully be visiting a nursey this month that has a good range of saxifragas...

I guess these guys really tide you over nicely while spring emerges there?
They are so lovely. Thank you for sharing them Todd!
