Saxifraga federici-augusti ssp. grisebachii

Family saxifragaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers pink-purple
Cultural notes well-drained soil

Spectacular when growing as neat rosettes on cliffsides, with alien-appearing flowering stems, this one will probably be nearly impossible to grow in our garden. But I'm trying anyway. Of European origin.
