This is a really adorable little plant - perfect carpet like look and really pretty shell-pink flowers - however - it REALLY resents the heat and will definitely not tolerate it or being dry. I planted it in spring and tried to keep it well watered over this brutally hot summer but I'm afraid it died anyway...

This plant is one of many Saxafraga I have in my Rock garden, it is one of the most consistent boomers out there!! Lovely blooms fade with age from deep/ dark pink/red to light pink, giving a multi-colored bloom effect at any one time. Very easy to grow as well.
