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...

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
