Flowers white (late spring-early summer)

Mossy saxifrage of cold climates: our Pennsylvania garden is about as warm as it will (hopefully) tolerate. White flowers over soft rosettes of lime-green leaves. Not considered one of the prize saxifragas, but since I can't seem to grow any species in the genus, I'm pleased just to have seedlings. Now to keep them alive...

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: orchard nursery area
