A low growing perennial evergreen plant great for all year-round color thanks to its oval, serrated, variegated leaves arranged in a rosette. Does well in a shady location. It has tall flower spikes in spring that are star shaped and have a pink eye and wonderful purple and yellow dots symmetrically arranged on the petals.
It appears as if London Pride is almost a generic name for a type of Saxifraga and so you probably have to be selective with the one that you pick. The one I have is probably S. x urbium ‘Aureopunctata’. is S. x urbium, is itself a hybrid between S. umbrosa and S. spathularis. The common name may allude to their rapid re-colonized of bombed sites after the London Blitz of the second world war.
It requires an evenly moist well-drained soil in shade.
Propagate from division.
