Please Note 

Porophyllum Saxifragas like a lot of light, but not much and 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 not mountainous climate, with more wet than cold winters, a fast drainage is very important. That's why a poor, gravelly soil is the best. But in summer roots may never dry out! Some of them need a bot more humus rich soil. Some grow best in a 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)
