In the alphabetical lists on our website you can find all the known Silver Saxifrages. We just skipped extinct plants and Saxes which are not longer available nowadays. Please understand, the alphabetical lists are not our sales lists! Twice a year, in spring and autumn we update our sales lists which are available on request by email.
Which are for sale
Please understand, we do not make cuttings of every plant in our collection, that's simply not doable. Every year we grow a changing range ofSilvers from our collection. Some are every year on the sales lists other maybe not, the same with difficult and rare ones. Of course we try to grow always the popular and rare ones, but although we are rather skilled en experienced the rooting can fail due to divers reasons.
How ordering works
We always work on 'first come first serve base' and reserving plants which are not on the sales lists for the next season is not possible. Of course reservation of plants for later delivery/shipping in the season is after payment always possible. Most collectors order just after the new list for shipping later in spring when the weather is better. But we ask you kindly to pay in advantage.
late spring/early summer flowering
Late spring and when winter was though, early summer the Silvers are flowering. We do not have an open day for the Silvers but you can always visit us by appointment when you want to see our Silver collection in full flower and buy some plants. Of course you can order Silvers throughout the year, like the Kabschia's
So please have fun scrolling through the lists
Every alphabetical page will start with the explanation as below
How to read the list
In general....Saxifrages are not sun and summer warmth lovers, so never grow them south facing in the rock garden. Best is some morning and evening sun, with enough shade between 11.00-16.00. Some need a more cool and shady position. But always with enough daylight. The roots may never dry out or stay too wet. You cannot wring out the soil, but you can water the Saxes when needed. Some need more humus rich soil, and wet staying roots, especially in summer. So in general very well drained poor soil is the best. Saxes do NOT need extra feeding or fertilizers, they get there nutrition out of the sand, grit, stone.
