Buy Saxifraga × urbium London pride: Invaluable evergreen for shadier spots

  • Position: full sun, with a little shade during the hottest part of the day, or partial shade
  • Soil: moist but freely draining
  • Rate of growth: fast
  • Flowering period: May to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Spreading to form a carpet of evergreen foliage, this is an invaluable perennial that will add year-round interest to shadier parts of the garden. It's at its best however when the airy sprays of tiny, white, star-shaped flowers appear in late spring and early summer, seeming to float on their wiry stems above the resettes of toothed, spoon-shaped leaves. Relatively undemanding and versatile, it's happiest when there is a reliable source of moisture - particularly during the warmer months of the year - and it's a great little plant for softening the edges, or filling larger gaps in the paving.

  • Garden care: Divide over-large clumps in spring.

Hello Can I cut back the dead flower stems of the saxifraga Urmium? Thank you.

Vernon

Hello, Yes, certainly. Once they have faded, just snip them off at their base.
