Arend's saxifrage "Ingeborg"

Small, carpet forming, dense, evergreen perennial (H 5-15 cm, W 20-25 cm). Leaves in numerous, small, ground-level rosettes, broadly egg-shaped to round (1-2 cm), deeply serrate, somehow fleshy, smooth, slightly glossy, dark green to slightly reddish. Flowers numerous, on long upright stems (up to 20 cm), simple, flat cup-shaped (1-1,5 cm), delicate, dark pink. Flowering period: April-June. Attracts butterflies and bees. It grows well in light, humus-rich, partly sandy, sufficiently drained, but always moderately moist soils and an open semi-shade. Useful as a ground-covering plant, or as a container-plant.
  • Herbaceous plants are not woody. Their stems are soft, usually remaining green. With some herabceous older stems may harden and look like woody stems (e. g. bamboo).

  • Herbaceous, not woody plant. Stems and leaves may be evergreen or deciduous - thus regrowing every spring. Perennials may blossom consecutively for several years. Some perennials develop special underground organs - bulbs, corms or rootstocks and these species are treated separetelly, not with geophyte and tuberous plants.

  • Leaves or needles remain on the plant for several consecutive years, usually 2 to 5 years. Our descriptions contain the word evergreen.

  • Plant can in otherwise appropriate environment survive cold down to - 23 °C.

  • Plants for partial shade need a few hours of direct sun per day to grow and blossom properly, thus could suffer harm from direct sun heat or overlong sun exposure. It is important for the plant not to be exposed to afternoon heat and in early afternoon hours, but must be exposed to morning, forenoon and evening sun. Partial shadow position can mean a site that is sunny one part of the day, or a site with sun and shade in patches, as it is the case under broadlived trees or behind a picket fence - wooden boards with spaces in between.

  • Porous or dry soils are normally light and loose, there is no stagnant water but relatively quickly flows in deeper layers; such ground are more airy and warmer, yet drier and usually contain less humus and for such undergrowth it is often to for drought to appear (e. g. rockgardens, walls, by paths and roads, on gravel, also on gravel surface in towns and close to buildings ...), plants of such undergrowth need well-drained soil, they tolerate drought but cannot tolerate constant moisture or even flooding.
