SAXIFRAGA   G 


'Gerard Manley Hopkins'   clone burseriana

Certainley one of the better burseriana's,selected by H.L.Foster 1972.  Close to the typical var. but more dense and compact growing.  Like most burseriana's best in a very well drained soil because in our climate burseriana's suffer from too much moisture in autumn and winter.  Splendid ofcourse in tufstone and in a through.  Slower growth and rooting.


'Gaertneri'  x mariae-theresiae

Not often seen and offered engleria type Saxifraga.  It's an old cultivar raised round 1920 by - ofcourse-  Franz Sündermann.  A straight burseriana x grisebachii hybrid.  Rosettes are firm and beautiful.  Flowers handsome with the red stems and sepals contrasting with the Lilac-pink small multiple flowers.  For a open spot with plenty of light and even some sunlight.  Like most engleria types give a very gravelly poor soil to realise a compact growth and fast drainage.  Pitty enough 'Gaertneri' is a slow grower and also slow rooting.


'Galahad'   x elisabethae

H.L.Foster 1967.  Looks like a x elisabethae 'Sylva' x burseriana major.  Spiky rosettes with very light-yellow flowers which fade to very light almost white-yellowish.  Needs a very well drained spot because it's a bit afrais of wet feet.  Enough light and even some sun.


'Galaxie'   x megaseaeflora

One of the better megaseaeflora's in my opinion mostly because the good uncomman flower color.  So sorry can not find the photo.  Slightly orangeish-yellow flowers after a cold winter more orangeish.  A  x anglica 'Winifred' x   x boydii 'Luteola' cross.  Doing fine on most places without further attention.  ofcourse goodlooking in tufstone and a eye-catcher in a through.  Popular and highly in demand.


'Galileo Galilei'   Renaissance Group.

A not very free flowering cross between stolitzkae(andersonii?) and x borisii 'Sofia' made by the late Sergio Bacci and Adrian Young.  Nice small andersonii like rosettes,loose growth and light-yellow flowers on medium stem.  Uncommon looking hybrid for poor gravelly very very well drained soil,enough light and can even withstand a fair amount of sun.  Pitty is the rather scarse flowering.


'Ganymede'   clone burseriana

Beautiful burseriana clone related to burseriana var. burseriana.  Smaller in it's whole appearance.morde dense compact growing cushion.  Rosettes smaller like the flowers.  Beautiful to see in bud.  Very good Saxifraga for a tufstone and through.  Growth is slow to normal.  I prefer a very well drained gravelly bit clayey soil for it dislikess out wet winters.  Older big cushions best with overhead protection.  Highly in demand.


'Gaston'   NCC

Seedling from J.Eschmann 2009 with a nice light-orange flower color.  Smaller rosettes.  growth is slow like propagation.  However a nice plant for a more open and light spot in the alpine-garden.  


'Geisha'   NCC

Engleria type seedling 2010 Alpigena Nursery.  Peculiar growing with many small rosettes and some bigger ones.  Short flower of a intense color.  Good growth.  Like most of the engleria a poor lean gravelly soil.


'Gelber Findling'   NCC

J.Eschmann 1969.  Nice Saxifraga making a good tight darker-green mat.  Rosettes which do not give any clue about parents but very nice and uncommon to see.  Small,tight,blunt,with multiple light-yellow flowers on short stem.  Poor gravelly soil and can withstand some sun.


'Genesis'   clone  sempervivum

Alpigena Nursery 2005.   From a swarm of seeds in search for a dwarf sempervivum.  Pink flowers,small rosettes.  Slow growing.  Highly in demand by collectors but due to slow growth and propagation not  on  a regular base in stock.  So sorry.


'Geneva'   marginata

Selected marginata seedling from the Alpigena Nursery 2007.  Slow growing,tight connected rosettes.  Long stems with multiple flowers.  For an open spot in very good drained gravelly soil.  


'Geoffrey'    NCC

x anglica 'Winifred' seedling with unknown influence raised by Frantisek Holenka round 1995.  Small tiny rosettes with are nice sharply pointed.   The handsome flowers are a sort of faintly pinkish-white fading more white during flowering.  Like this cute thing in a tufstone or through.  Growth is normal,bit susceptible for frost damage and too moist feet.  But a very well drained sandy/gravelly soil will do a lot. Not bad at all!


'Geoffrey Gould'   clone burseriana

Former burseriana GWG1.  Nice,good growing burseriana clone for a well drained spot.  Good flowering,with well formed rather big flowers on long stems.


'George Gerschwin'   Blues Group

One of the better intro's of the last decades,it's a wonderfull breathtaking cultivar from Jan Bürgel and Oldrich Maixner round 2003.  It's the majestic lowndesii from the Himalaya range crossed with  x poluanglica 'Tvúj Uspech' (poluniniana x  x anglica 'Winifred') and 'Winifred' is lilacina x an unknown other x anglica....very impressive alltogether!  But back to this true 'Rockdiamond',try one in tufstone,it's superbe.  Or as  eye-catcher in a small through.  In the open garden he is doing very fine without much problems on a more cool spot without the warm sun.  Wel drained but more humus/clay mixture.  Love the rosettes with the sparkle on the tip of the leaves!  Delicate tone of pink flowers and in bud.....splendid!

Growth is normal to somewhat slow.  Highly in demand.


'Gerard Philippe'   NCY

Another fine cross from Jan Bürgel and Oldrich Maixner with a more red-pink color tone.  It's x poluanglica 'Tvuj Uspech' with the expedition collected Saxifraga SEP37.  Flowers very very well often the whole cushion covered with a mass of these beautiful flowers!  For a cool bit more shady moist staying spot which must be ofcourse well drained but also more humus rich.  Excellent!    Highly in demand and foor a good reason.


'Giacomo Puccini'   Toscana Group

A  x anglica 'Winifred' crossed with a x elisabethae 'Galahad' by Sergio Bacci and Adrian Young round 1993.  Charming cultivar with a uncommon floer color.  Wellformed with beautiful veining in the petals. Very light pinkish-white with more pinkish round the centre.  Spiky rosettes close packed.  One thing this cross is vunerable for too much rain in our lowland rockgardens so keep an eye on it.


'Gina Lollobrigida'   Blues Group

Will make an better phot next spring for this is a lovely cross by Jan Bürgel and Oldrich Maixner 1995.  For a cool more shady moist staying spot.  Well drained and more humus/clayey rich soil.  Also with the nice sparkles on the leave tips.  This time it's lowndesii crossed with 'Tvuj Pritel'  Very highly in demand and always sold out as fast as lightening.


'Giuseppe Verdi'   Music Group

Love this dinnikii x ferdinandi-coburgi var.rhodopea cross from Karel Lang 2002....but.....it's not a good Saxifraga just outside in the alpine-garden.  A beautiful cultivar but best in Alpine-house for it's in our mostly lowland climates vunerable for moisture.  One can try -like we do- to grow them in a mixture of coarse sand and chippings of different sizes.  Early overhead protection but it's not easy to please.  Flowers on medium stem and a sort of Pinkish-buf color tone,lovely to see.  Beautiful sharply pointed greish rosettes very close growing.  Not easy but a challenge?


'Gladiator'   NCC

Sturdy engleria Saxifraga,big grey rosettes with a good Purple flower color.  Give open and light spot with even some sun.  A soil mixture with many chippings and no to much humus rich soil.  Propagation somewhat slow like most engleria's.   Popular hybrid.


'Gloria'   clone burseriana

The origional plant from Reginald Farrer is extinct.  The 'Gloria' that's going around in the circuit for a long time is a nice and good burseriana clone.


'Gnome'   NCC

Probably extinct.


'Goeblii'   NCC

Another example that Non Classible Cultivars  (bastards) can be superbe!  Raiser not known,round 1965 listed.  Solid,close together growing rosettes,  Long stem with small multiple flowers,veru soft pinkish-créme.  Red stems and sepals.  For a real engleria spot,which is open and light with even some sun.  Very well drained poor lean soil.  Very,very recommendable.


'Gold Dust'   x eudoxiana

Close to  x eudoxiana 'Haagii',1959 A.Bloom.  Without any problems for almost any spot in the rockgarden.  Good yellw color,nice darker green rosettes.  It's a ferdinandi-coburgi x sancta.


'Golden Age'   NCC

Formerly in the circuit under the wrong name of 'Jendini' which is the same as x geuderi 'Eulenspiegel'. So please when obtained under that name,change it in 'Golden Age' to avoid more confusion than there already is.  Old Saxifraga from the Sun Valley Nursery 1993.  Awesome compact cushion of small,close growing silver-grey rosettes.  Bit spiky and looks like a x boydii is involved.  Small single yellow flowers on thin medium red stems.  Beautiful litlle thing which is very slow growing,and not always so free flowering in it's first years.  You can grow it in the open garden but it's a bit vunerable for too much moisture,so give a sandy/clayey soil with a lot of chippings for a superfast draining.  Can withstand a fair amount of sun.  Ofcourse handsome in a tufstone but than even more slow.  Perfect Saxifraga for growing in a pot/alpine-house and small through.   Desirable Saxifraga!


'Golem'   Literary Group

Amazing cross made by the master Karel Lang,it's  x megaseaeflora x lowndesii.  Same cross as brother seedling 'Johann Wolfgang Goethe' but even bigger flowers and the growth is faster and much more loose.  So please give 'Golem' very poor,lean gravelly soil and it will do great just out in the open garden!  Also good in tufstone to grow it compact.  Polular Saxifraga!


'Gossip' 

More details in due time.


'Göthenburg'  NCC

Saxifraga seedling collected round the 1990's in the Botanical Garden Göthenburg.  Not so easy to please.  Give a more humus rich but gravelly soil.  Cool spot,bit moist staying and just a bit early morning and late afternoon sun.  Best with winter protection.   Ofcourse alpine-house is a good option.  Maybe for more skilled growers.  *Photo by Hans Meulenbelt*


'Grace Farwell'   x anglica

Can't find the photo. Russel Vincent Prichard round 1927.  Probably a x luteo-purpurea nm godroniana crossed with lilacina.  The real thing is not so easy to obtain,but so now and than we can offer you this wonderfull Saxifraga. Mostly  x anglica 'Clare' is offerd as 'Grace Farwwell'  Slow growing!  Needs a more shady place but not dark.  Flowers must be a rich wine-red with darker veins.  


'Grandiflora'   clone burseriana

Collected in nature  by Franz Sündermann 1913.  Belongs to burseriana var.major.  But faster growing and a more loose growth.  Mostly longer stems,flowers almost identical.  Rosettes more elonggated growing.  For a more sunny,light spot with poor soil to keep the growth better compact.  Like all burseriana's very well drained soil for it dislikess wet feet in winter.


'Gratoides'   x grata

Not certain if the original plants are still in the circuit,probably not.  The photo is not so good because the plant does have elongated stems due to a too shady spot.  'Gratoides' does have a very nice rosettes,spiky,intermediate between ferdinandi-coburgi and aretioides.  Nice dee-yellow as you can see.  For a light spot and even some sun.  I prefer a rather poor soil with a fast draining.


'Grebovka'   x megaseaeflora

Frantisek Holenka 1984.  Bit dull pinkish-white flowering hybrid.  Rosettes and flower form idicate a 'Jupiter' seedling but not certain.  Nice in tufstone.


'Gregor'   x poluanglica

H.Hofmeister,think round 2005.  Maybe the most popular Saxifraga in the circuit!  Not only for the mass of very good pink flowers but fir he is much stronger and less vunerable than other x poluanglica's.  Will do on almost any spot.  Fantastic to see a mature plant in full buds!  Flowering is sublime and longlasting.  In a big tufstone it makes an eye-catching waterfall!  Ofcourse sublime for the showbench!  Highly in demand.  For years now the most sold Saxifraga on our nursery!


'Gregor Mendel'   x apiculata

The wellknown strong and relible apiculata from B.G.Berlin 1890!  Give a spot with lots of light and even some sunlight.  Poor gravelly soil to keep more compact growth for it can grow fast.  Good yellow flowers and firm rosettes.


'Grey Owl'    NCC

More details in due time.


'Grösser Prinz'   x petraschii

J.Eschmann 1963.  More difficult x petraschii from the Eschmann Nursery in Switserland.  Slow growing,making a hard compact very close packed dome of greyish rosettes.  Rather big single flowers on medium stems.  Beautiful cultivar but not so easy to grow well.  Best in pot/alpine-house.  Or you can try one in tufstone.  Sometimes available.


'Gustav Hegi'   x anormalis

Old hybrid from Franz Sündermann round 1920's.  A straight an intermediate between parents cross of pseudo-laevis and stribrnyi.  Unusual combination,the soft fleshy rather bdifficult to grow pseudo-laevis with the sturdy stribrnyi.  Nice cross for a bit more cool spot without too much direct sunlight.  Grows best in a more clayey/humus rich soil.
