Please note

Porophyllum Saxifragas like a lot of light, but not much directly sunlight. They prefer a cool spot in the rock garden but not too dark. Some can tolerate the sun a litlle bit better, but not during the hottest hours. In our mountainous climate, with more wet than cold winters, a fast drainage is very important. That's why poor gravelly soil is the best. But in summer roots may never dry out. Some of them need a bit more humus rich soil. Some grow best in tuff stone.  In the catalogue we use the following abbreviations


Location:    A=Sunny   B= Semi shade   C= Shadow but enough light   TS= Tuff   T= Trough

Difficulty:   1= Easy   2= Some minor adjustments   3= Best with winter cover   4= Alpine house

Growth:      1= Fast   2= Normal   3= Moderate   4= Slow

Soil Type:   PGS= Poor gravelly soil     HRS= More humus rich soil     ( Click here for more explanation)

'Dr. Watson'

poluniniana x kotschyi

J.Bürgel   2008

Strange combination but very nice! The Himalayan poluniniana which loves, shade and moist combined with the Caucasion Kotschyi which loves lime stone and some sun. Together the combine fine. The red stems and the yellow flowers giving it a fresh appearance. Bit care when winter is too wet. To play safe best with overhead winter cover.

Clone ferdinandi-coburgi var. rhodopea

K.Stivin   1960

Maybe for the name but this also a sort of 'Holy Grail' Saxifraga for the collectors. Not an easy one, also due to difficult rooting. The trick is to grow 'Drakula'  in a place where it doesn't get rain. Watering by hand and not on the plant. Very good pot plant in alpine house when you have a good hand of watering. Best in the rock garden always covered. Lots of light and even a fair amount of sun. On the right spot 'Drakula' will thrive. Very highly in demand.

A.Young   2013

One of the most popular Saxes of this decade!  This proofs completely that NCC Saxifragas can be better as coordinated crosses. What a beauty, easy, strong, reliable flowering, one of the better pinks, well formed petals. Beautiful petal vaining and waved margin. Great 'WoW' factor by nursery visitors.

'Edgar Irmscher'


F.Sündermann   1960

Bit 'messy' growing plant, but nice most due to the flowers. Orange with pronounced anthers and nice red in the eye when ripe. The light red stem complete the picture. Needs a spot with good daylight and even some sun otherwise it grows more 'messy'. Very good drainage and when autumn/winter is wet i prefer overhead cover.

D.Hoare   2017

Love this Engleria type very much. It's a stribrnyi seedling. Irregular growing cushion but striking rosettes. Long lasting red pink flowers. Excellent plant for a trough with lots of daylight and a bit of sun. Found out it needs a very well drained soil, and when autumn/winter is wet best with cover to keep it in good condition.

F.Sündermann   1920

Old an bit strange cultivar. Cross between marginata and the not so easy pseudolaevis. A real collectors plant which need some more care. Flowers on stem, yellow. Give a sheltered spot with good drainage. When winter is more wet than cold i prefer early cover. It's worth the effort for it's a interesting Saxifraga.

J.Eschmann   2016

Always love the Engleria types. This one is good one. Special for the nice rosettes which are somewhat elongated columnar growing. Good deep red-purple flowers. 'Emden' needs a very well drained gravelly spot with plenty of daylight and some sun. It's strong and longlasting but when autumn/winter are wet i prefer overhead cover ton keep this juwel in perfect condition. Slow.

Raiser not known   2016

Named by B.Moerland 2016. Received from a friend as a seedling collected in his rock garden. Looks a lot like the x poluanglica types. But not so fast growing and more compact cushion. Flowers are light pink and certainly  allright. Altough origin unknown a Saxifraga to be promoted.
