Plant which need at least a few hours a day of solar light. Usually during the coldest periods of the year the aerial part of these plants dries; it will begin to develop again the spring after.The Saxifraga bears even very harsh temperatures, therefore it can be grown outdoors without feeling endangered by low temperatures.
The development of the the Saxifraga is This plant in the summer assumes a pinkwhite colouring; it is large in size and can reach 30 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Saxifraga should be used for rock gardens,
In the spring let’s remember to fertilize our perennial plants, using a slow release granular fertilizer, to add in one solution every 3-4 months. If desired we can also use a liquid fertilizer for flowering plants, to mix with the irrigation water every 20-25 days.
We suggest watering these plants with 2-3 glasses of water only when the soil is perfectly dry, generally it needs to be watered about every 1-2 weeks . Let's avoid to exceed. Generally during the period of vegetatational rest it isn't necessary to water our perennial plants, which in many cases lose their aerial part.
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.
Grow these perennial plants in a very well drained substratum.
