Yes, Saxifraga oppositifolia, Purple Saxifrage, occurs across Europe and is native to Scotland.

Very nice and delicate, where should it be planted? Does it flower for long?

6 Mar, 2012

 

In the mountains it grows in very, very poor soil and screes so needs a lean free draining soil in full sun, preferably where there are some rocks. Our S oppositifolia are in flower now in theory they flower in June and July!

Ours are in flower too, very early really. It also comes in different shades of purple.

Info is for wild plants in the mountains, be they the Alps or Ben Lawers in Scotland.
