Geoff and I moved to our present house in December 2013. Starting from scratch it's been a huge challenge but we love it.

One of my faves, flowering away today. I split it in the spring, and it doesn’t seem to have noticed, two great plants flowering away

Such wonderful plants. I have the rubrifolia and love how it flowers when everything else is dying back 😊

It’s in shade for part of the day Jane, but does get some sun. Need to split in spring as it’s gotten so big @jaynehynesburton

Help me identify this plant. I know this is a saxifrage but does anyone know which one? It flowers in the autumn and dies down completely in winter.

I am pretty sure it is a Saxifrage Rotundiflora. What colour are the flowers and are they on talllish spikes

Thank you. It flowers late in the year. October time, about 12-15 inches with lots of star like flowers that are mainlywhite almost like a little firework.
