Saxifraga "Black Ruby"


Saxifraga "Black Ruby" (saxifraga fortunei Black Ruby)

Bought 4 of these at the Rare Plant sale at Blagdon this summer. They are all doing well in the gravel in the Gazebo.

Karen... if you buy any more, put them in gravel ... they seem to love it.... here's my Black Ruby after I moved her to coloured gravel last year...

My Black Ruby struggled a bit in last winter's exceptionally cold weather, but she has bounced back now, and is in flower again.. :o)
