Neutral Grasmussen On Jul 23, 2007, Grasmussen from Anchorage, AK (Zone 4a) wrote:

Saxifrage bronchialis is labled as the "Yellow Spotted Saxifrage" in several widely used field guides, including several by Verna E. Pratt. As a result it has become most commonly known as the "Yellow Spotted Saxifrage" though out Alaska and much of the Northwest.

Neutral Todd_Boland On Dec 1, 2004, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

Although they look similar to the 'encrusted saxifrages', this species actually belongs to a different saxifrage group (the rosettes are stiff but there is no lime-encrustation as in the encrusted group). They are not easy to grow in cultivation and are best enjoyed in the wild.
