I especially like the saxifrages that are colorful even before they bloom.

You have some really nice ones of those, Wim!  :o

There are quite a lot which do that, Rick. Saxes are very nice plants (and not very hard to grow, which is a plus too!)

Wim- every one is beautiful! I haven't got any seed for saxes yet, since I haven't known where to start! I only have native S aizoides..

David- looks like it grew there naturally!

Great collection Wim!  Mine are budded but frozen.  Maybe late April will see a few blooms.

The second species of Saxifraga in flower here is S juniperifolia. (The first is S oppositifolia collected in N Norway) Most of the plant is in shade and do not flower. Only two small pieces have one scape each. Here is one of them:
