You may remember I posted a picture of the developing flower stem on my saxifraga longifolia. Well it has exceeded all my expectations, it has been fantastic and is still going strong. This is how it looked on teh 1st of May.

How incredible! What energy it must take to produce that! Will the rosette now die?

Yes I've been reliably informed that it will die after flowering. I recently bought a similar one with 3 rosettes :)

Its so depressing that a plant so lovely will die after it flowers. My 'Tumbling Waters' is elongating rapidly but shows no signs of babies...I'm afraid it will behave like its S. longifolia parent.
