These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year. As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce. We suggest locating this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight during the coolest hours of the day.We suggest growing the the Saxifraga outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather.
We suggest adding to the irrigation water, in the spring, every 20-25 days, a specific fertilizer for flowering plants. We can also mix to the soil near the plants a granular slow release fertilizer, which has a 3-4 month action.
These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal. The Saxifraga is a plant for a rock garden. The Saxifraga Is small in size; in spring it assumes a yellow colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round.
Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 1-2 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 2-3 glasses of water . Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them.
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
We suggest a substratum characterized by an excellent drainage.
When wanted we can grow these plants in a vase. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
