NCC from a Canadian source. Raiser unknown. Bit difficult to grow litlle Saxifraga with small pale-yellow flowers somewhat scarse flowering. Needs winter protection for it dislikes to much rain. More for the collector.
'Abel Tasman' x marginata
A peculiar dwarf marginata raised by Bart Moerland. Very small compact growing rosettes,typical marginata but real small and bit sharper pointed. Not very free flowering but older plants do better. White flowers in bud after opening going to a soft tone pink which we se more often in marginata's. In the garden vunerable for to much moist so take care best in Tufstone or Alpine-house.Slow growing and slow to propagate so not always in stock or very soon sold out because very sought after by connaisseurs.
Probably a seedling of federici-augusti but not certain. Nice and good Saxifraga with big tough silvery rosettes. Good dark-purple flowers. Irregular dome,slow growing. Can withstand some sun and doing fine on a open gravelly spot. Can't find the photo's sorry,it's a nice Sax.
'Aemula' x borisii
Old Franz Sumdermann cross,before 1913!. Ferdinandi-coburgi x marginata cross. Typical x borisii Sax with nice seperated petal arrangement. Doing well on a open well drained spot.
'Afrodite' sempervivum clone
Collected by Radvan Horny round 1981. Interesting darker flowering sempervivum clone. For a well drained spot with enough light. Can withstand some sun. Slow growing and slow to get rooted,therefor not always in stock. Very highly in demand.
'Aladdin' x borisii
Raised 1967 by H.L Foster. Ferdinandi-coburgi x marginata. Good light-yellow flowers on medium stem. This nice Sax requires very good drainage for the roots dislike to much water. To keep in good shape best with overhead protection. Nice dark green rosettes.
'Alan Martin' x boydilacina
Nice plant from Rob Potterton with a good soft yellow tone. Sport of x boydilacina 'penelope'.
Dark green matforming rosettes. Not always so free flowering.
For almost every spot in the rockgarden. Aretioides x burseriana x lilacina cross.
'Alba' x apiculata
Very old cultivar,1910,raiser unknown. Marginata x sancta cross. Strong and reliable Sax for almost every spot with enough light,can even withstand some sun. In good years it gives a mass flowers.
'Albert Einstein' x apiculata
Also a strong and good growing apiculata. Marginata x sancta cross. Strong longlasting flowers. Open spot with enough light and a bit of sun.
'Albert's Yellow' NCC
Raised by Albert de Mezy without certain parenthood. Maybe the best Yellow flower color! Slower growing Sax,medium stems,beautiful formed dark yellow flowers. Nice rosettes,bit clustered growing. Give very well drained soil. Open spot with enough light. Keep a eye on it because in wet winters roots can rot. Very interesting for the flower color.
'Aldebaran' x borisii
ferdinandi-coburgi x marginata cross from Radvan Horny raised round 1976. Bit slow growing. For a well drained spot in the open rockery. Flowers longlasting.
'Aldo Bacci' Milford Group
A marginata clone collected on the Sorrento crossed with aretioides. Raised by S.Bacci and A.Young 1994. Very nice Saxifraga! Good multiple flowers of a soft tone yellow. Does make a nice dome with it's good rosettes. Doing well in the open garden on a spot sheltered for the sun on hottest hours. Give well drained gravelly gravelly soil.
'Alfons Mucha' NCC
This Non classible cultivar is the living example that Saxifraga's without knowing the parents for certain can be real 'Rock Diamonds'! Raised in 1970 by the wellknown Frantisek Holenka. Love this Sax very much with it's cerise-pink colored flowers, very cute bit columnar rosettes. Delightful Sax in Tuf-stone. Always high in demand so you must be lucky to obtain this very popular orphan.
'Alice' Milford Group
marginata 'Milica' x aretioides by Malcom McGregor 2002. Nice but somewhat slow growing yellow flowering Sax. Needs bit protected spot when in the open garden. Can withstand some sun but dislike wetfeet.
'Allendale Acclaim' x lismorensis
Beautiful cross 1994,from the famous hybridiser Raymond Fairbairn. It's a bloodline with aretioides x georgei x lilacina x media. Fine color,darker onside. Needs a cool spot without to much sun but not to shady. Well drained more humus rich soil. And when winter is more wet than cold,best with overhead protection.
'Allendale Accord' NCY
Nice NCY (not classified yet) Saxifraga,it's across between diapensioides and lilacina which is ofcourse interesting considering the parents. Nice dome,small rosettes and a delicate soft tone flowers which is a very very pale pinkish-white. Reliable and strong for most spots in the garden. bit slow growing.
'Allendale Andante' x arco-valleyi
A lilacina x marginata var.boryi cross. Nice rosettes more marginata like. Love the soft rose tone of the flowers,most delightfull! Dislikess to humid condition,so best om open spot with enough wind circulation,cool,shady spot with well drained but more humus rich soil. Like her in Tufstone and Alpine-house. Very recommendable.
'Allendale Angel' x kepleri
Lovely Saxifraga,with good multiple yellow flowers on a medium stem. Best part is the rosettes,which are spiny like 'Drakula',not surprising considering the parents being ferdinandi-coburgi and cinerea. Strong plant outside when planted on a open well drained spot. Dislikess to wet feet so keep an eye on her. Big plants are better with winter protection.
'Allendale Argonaut' NCY
cinerea x lilacina a very well chosen combination which gives us a deleicate flower color with more cinerea like rosettes. Perfect Sax for a Tufstone or Alpine-house because outside it needs some extra attention due it's very vunerable for wet roots. Well drained spot and early overhead protection will do the trick. Some years i noticed the flower color is much more intense than the other. Highly in demand.
'Allendale Ballad' NCY
Special Saxifraga from Mr.Fairbairn a cross between media and diapensioides two most intruiging botanical Saxifrages. Problems is that the growth is very slow and therefor not easy to make enough cuttings. Needs humus rich soil which is well drained. Maybe best as potplant in Alpine-house. You must be lucky,we do propagate it,but it's one of the most wanted Saxes by collectors.
'Allendale Ballet' NCC
Peculiar Saxifraga cros,it's the expedion collected sep45 with a lilacina. More sep45 like but smaller rosettes. As you can see it flowers bit scarse but older plants do much better. Always a challenge to grow Saxes like 'Ballet'. Will do outside on a cool moist staying spot but well drained which is not so easy. Maybe best in Alpine-house to achieve the best results with this cross.
'Allendale Bamby' x lismorensis
Stunning cross! It's georgei x x anglica 'Quarry Wood'. Like most lismorensises Bamby needs a more shady cool spot with humus rich soil but well drained. Big plants are best with overhead protection in wet winters. Also a stunning plant on the showbench of your Alpine-house. Lovely bud color. The darker centre of the flowers are making the difference.
'Allendale Baron' NCY
Strange and maybe therefor interesting for collectors. But not so easy to grow ell in my humble opinion. Difficult and vunerable when growing outside,so maube best in Alpine-house. It's a cross between aretioides from Europe and georgei from the Himalaya range. I'm honest he is seldom available tue to his difficulties.
'Allendale Bauble' NCY
Well chosen combination between media and lilacina. Slow growing but once established doing fine. Give the right spot because it dislikess wet feet very much in winter. Best with early overhead protection in winter or as potplant in Alpine-house. Not in a regular base in stock and highly in demand by collectors.
'Allendale Beau' x lismorensis
Another georgei x 'Quarry Wood' cross. Beautiful Sax but for more skilled growers. Outside she requires a cool more shady spot with humus rich very well drained soil which stays cool and moist in summer. So maybe best to grow her in a pot in the Alpine-house. Does not like high temperatures!
'Allendale Beauty' Harmonie Group
And a beauty she is! aretioides x lilacina,more to cinerea for the rosettes. Aretioides coming back in the flowers. Soft red stems with very good yellow multiple longlasting flowers. Needs a very,very well drained soil,please keep that in mind. Does not like wet roots to long in autumn and winter. Good in a pot. Great Sax!
'Allendale Betty' x lismorensis
One of my personal favorites,for what it's worth for you. Super flower color,darker in centre. Great to see her in full bud! It's also a georgei x 'Quarry Wood' cross so a cool bit shady spot with well drained more humus rich soil. Can be superbe on the showbench. Dislikess wet winters and temperatures above 30 celcius in summer.
'Allendale Billows' NCY
Love this superbe Sax very much well chosen cross by the famous hybridiser Raymond Fairbairn,father of all the Allendale Saxifrages! It's a McBeath 1379 which is alpigena crossed with wendelboi. Doing well in the rockery aswell in Tufstone. Popular Saxifraga for it's overall appearance,espacially the good longlasting flowers.
'Allendale Blush' NCY
Interesting cross,'Rosina Sundermann x lilacina. Lovely flower color. More to lilacina therefor cool spot,keep out the sun between 11.00-16.00 hours. Best with winterprotection or Alpine-house. For more skilled growers.
'Allendale Bonny' NCY
aretioides crossed with georgei,superbe cross. Somewhat soft fleshy rosettes with beautiful sparkle at the tip. Very good and strong yellow multiple flowers on short stem. Give cool,moist spot without sun on the hottest hours. Will do beautiful in tufstone or as showplant.
'Allendale Boon' x izari
aretioides crossed with sempervivum gives us a true fine cultivar with beautiful multiple orangeish flowers on a long stem. Good sturdy rosettes which make an irregular hummock. Not a fast but steady grower for a well drained open spot outside. Can withstand some sun. A Good one!
'Allendale Bounty' NCY
Another surprsingly well worked out cross from Mr.Fairbairn. This is the desirable diapensioides crossed with one of the more beautiful cultivars, x goringana 'Nancye'. Good compact bit columnar growing rosettes with a silvery color. Flowers a soft pinkish tone with more red in the centre when ripe. Slow growing and not so easy to propagate and therefor not on a regular base in stock. In the rockery give a well drained spot,poor lean soil gives an even more compact plant with a better rosette color. In Tufstone ofcours even slower growing but very worthwile. Highly in demand.
'Allendale Bravo' x lismorensis
And indeed a 'Bravo' for Ray Fairbairn!,this lismorensis is amazing. Also a georgei crossed with x anglica 'Quarry Wood'. Give a spot out of the sun,cool staying,bit moist staying humus richer soil...but ofcourse..and again...well drained. Saw one in a Tufstone and it was of an incredibale beauty. Good for the showbench. Litlle treasure!
'Allendale Cabal' NCC
'Cumulus' x lilacina a surprisingly good Saxifraga. Rather easy for a bit shady cool spot. Well flowering with a pinkish-white color and pinkish flushes in the petals. Good growth and flowering. Popular Saxifraga.
'Allendale Carol' NCY
The magical marginata wild collected on the Sorrento crossed with andersonii from the Himalaya range. Beautiful rosetteswith short stem and big multiple pure-white flowers. Slower growing and slower to propagate. Give very good drained soil with a lot of chippings for it hates wet feet. In wet winters best with overhead protection.
'Allendale Celt' x novacastelensis
Great Sax cross but not so easy and sometimes short-lived. Think due to the complex bloodline which is x tukuchensis (andersonii x hypostoma) crossed with poluniniana. Nevertheless many Alpine-lovers just want to grow 'Celt'. Worth to try as potplant in Alpine-house. In the rockery it's possible but very well drained humus rich soil and overhead protection in rainy periods. Always fast sold out,sorry.
'Allendale Charm' Swing Group
poluniniana x wendelboi cross. Good and easy for most spots outside. Good for the showbench. Mass of flowers and a good grower.
aretioides x georgei a lovely cross! Soft tone of yellow,rosettes with sparkles on the tip of leaves. Give a sheltered spot,bit cool and not to much sun. Well drained,humus rich. Grows well and flowers freely. Very much sought for by collectors.
Many qualify this 'Chick' among Raymonds best creations.
Interesting cross between aretioides and georgei but more for the challenge because i do not find it easy to grow. Best in pot/Alpine-house. Sometimes in stock but not on a regular base.
'Allendale Delight' NCY
Litlle treasure but needs special requirements to grow well. Due to the tricky combination she is...'Allendale Amber' (aretioides x lilacina) x lowndesii. We grow her very well outside in a area with just some early morning and late afternoon sun. In summer the spot stays cool. Soil with more humus but also awfull well drained and in winter some overhead protection. Alpine-house. Worth the efforts to grow. Stunning to see a mature plant in bud aswell in full flower!.
'Allendale Desire' NCC
andersonii x x wendelacina,litlle Rockdiamond in my humble opinion. Love the multiple soft toned rose flowers. Good bit fleshy light green rosettes. Give a sheltered spot for to much sun aswell rain or in a pot for the Alpine-house.
'Allendale Divine' NCY
Bit strange but i think recommendable cross between iranica and x grata 'Gratoides'. Cute rosettes with light-yellow flowers for a more open light spot just outside in the rockgarden.
'Allendale Dream' NCY
lilacina x sep549,delightfull Saxifraga especially for the soft rose flowers. Flat mat of small rosettes. For a cool somewhat shady spot. Soil welldrained but not to lean,give some more humus. Nor a fast one but going steady.
'Allendale Eden' NCY
Desirable Saxifraga from an interesting cross lilacina x lowndesii. Give cool spot without the sun,maybe bit of morning sun or late afternoon. Dislikess high temperatures in summer. Big soft pink flowers,waved petals. Slow growing. Worth the challenge!
'Allendale Elegance' NCY
Wonderfull cross,it's a lilacina with lowndesi one of the two most desirable species for most collectors. Doing great just outside in a humus richer soil medium with enough chippings to keep the roots not to wet in rainy periods. In winter some overhead protection when winter is more wet than cold. Also great for the showbench. Highly wanted cultivar!
A Sax to fall in love with! Another from the famous Raymond Fairbairn the creator of all Allendales. It's alpigena crossed with the most wanted cultivar ever... x anglica 'Winifred'. What a combination! As you can understand highly in demand so you must be bit lucky. Grow her on a cool bit moist spot. Eyecatcher in a Tufstone or pot/Alpine-house.
'Allendale Elite' NCY
lilacina e lowndesii,what a cross! Needs cool spot,no sun on hottest hours. Humus rich but well drained soil. Flower color can be changing by the year,sometimes much darker like in this picture.
'Allendale Enchanter' NCY
kotschyi x alpigena,charming cultivar which combines two complete different botanical Saxes. Best on a well drained spot without to much sun on hottest hours. Flowers multiple on short stem with good orange coloring anthers towards ripening. Real fresh looking Sax.
'Allendale Envoy' NCY
To be honest this cross between kotschyi x wendelboi is not the best Allendale. Ver scarse flowering and even seasons without any flowers! Think due the lack of right enviroment those two caucasian specie need. Rosettes are nice and make a hard hummock. Can withstand some sun and doing well on a open and light spot in gravelly soil.
