Unusual combination a cultivar with one of the more difficult species from the Himalaya region.  For more skilled growers

'Sirius Alpha' Light-Yellow 4,00 Karel Lang 1992 a quadrifaria crossed with x grata 'Gratoides'  Unusual cross maybe best in Alpine-house or try one in Tuf stone.  In the open garden not so easy to keep in good shape.  Slow growing,making a irregular group of rosettes.  Tricky to root,sometimes a few to spare.



Very fine combination for a Cultivar,maybe we must try to make some more from this combi.  Strong and good old introduction for almost any place in the Rockgarden.

'Rosina Sundermann' Greasy Off-White 3,00 Old cross from Franz Sundermann 1936.  Plant is more like a marginata,the diapensioides influence is more in the growth and a bit in the flower shape.  Dark green cushion with corymbose growing rosettes bit open and loose growth.  The flowers are very charming with a sort of Greasy White.  It's a Sax for a light spot and not to rich soil.

Cultivar Binomial S


Seedlings from the Botanical sancta in this binomial.  


'Odysseus' Intense Yellow 2,00 Sax from the UK,no data.  Strong and vigorous sax for a sunny light spot.  poor lean soil gives a more compact cushion.  Nice dark green rosette color. 
'Sancta Multiflora' Itense yellow 2,00 Years ago we received a sancta with this name which indicates that it is a better flowering sancta?  It's indeed a good flowering motherplant and maybe a wild collected sancta wich is more free flowering.  The botanical sancta which we list is indeed a plant which flowering is not great.


The wellknown cross between two important European Botanical Saxes give us good and reliable Saxifraga's mostly for the open Rock garden.  Well drained soil,bit poor and gravelly.  They can stand a good amount of morning and afternoon sun.   Some need a bit more attention.

'Friesei' White 2,00 1920 raised by Franz Sundermann.  Multiple flowers on medium stem.  It's maybe not a 'flashing' Sax but a very reliable and long flowering one.  Best on a light spot and poor gravelly sandy soil.
'Kestoniensis' White 2,00 G.Reuthe round 1910.  Old Cultivar for a open bit sunny spot on poor soil.  Nice rosettes intermediate the parents. 
'Maria Luisa' Pure-White 4,00 1933 Johann kellerer.  More elegant than the other x salmonica's and a Sax which does not like to much rain.  So in the open Rockery it needs perfect drained soil and overhead protection in autumn/winter.  You can try one in a big Tuf stone or Alpine-house.  It's a beautiful greyish sturdy Sax which grows slow.  Rooting is bit difficult and slow.  Sometimes available.
'Melrose' White 3,00 1890! by John Brack Boyd.  burseriana x marginata var. rocheliana.  This is a real fine Saxifraga as you can see on the photo.  Red buds catch the Eye in the first stadium,flowers with very short stems contrasting nicely with the greyish pointed rosettes.  Slow growing and bit slow rooting.  Light spot very well drained like 'Maria Luisa' it can be damaged when autumn/winter is to wet.
   'Mrs.Helen Terry' White  2,00  1906 Valerie Finis.  burseriana x marginata.  Compact sax,steady growth.  Doing well on Tuf stone.  In garden not difficult but think about the soil which must be fast draining. 
    'Obristii' Pure-White  2,00  A Sundermann cross round 1905.  More like a marginata,it's a cross between a burseriana x marginata.   Charming Pure-White flowers on medium stems,flowers 1-3.  Well drained gravelly soil.  Strong Sax.
   'Pichleri' White  2,00  1120s. Franz Sundermann also a burseriana x marginata straight hybrid.  Strong and honest x salmonica for almost any light well drained spot. 
   'Pseudo-Salominii' White  2,00  Another sundermann plant 1920s.  burseriana x marginata.  Bit more like burseriana.  Robust strong Saxifraga tends to grow bit loose so best in poor sandy gravelly soil. 
  'Rosaleen'  White  3,00  Bigger robust plant, somewhat slow but steady growing.  Dislikess to much moist especially in autum/winter,maybe overhead protection.  And ofcourse a very well drained gravelly substrate. Rooting slow. Probably from Irland,no further data.
   'Salomonii' White  2,00  Very old saxifraga round 1894! by franz Sundermann a cross between burseriana and marginata var.rocheliana.  Easy plant for almost any light spot in the Rockgarden. 
  'Schreineri'  White  2,00  1920 F.Sundermann.  burseriana x marginata.  Very nice slower growing x salmonica.   Good flowers with slightly waved petals.  Rosettes greyish on poor lean soil which is best for 'Schreineri'.


Crosses with pseudolaevis are always 'softer' and a bit unusual.  In this Binomial until now just one Cultivar.

'Martha' Deep-Yellow 2,00 A Sundermann Saxifraga from 1920.  Seems to be a x eudoxiana 'Haagii' x pseudolaevis.  It's a charming well flowering Saxifraga. With pseudolaevis like flowers.  Glossy green soft feeling rosettes. with the leaves open. Well growing on good gravelly bit more humus rich soil. 


One Cultivar in this Binomial,the famous 'Vahlii'   A combination we must try out better i think although the plants probably will be slow growing like 'Vahlii'

'Vahlii' Pure-White 5,00 marginata var.coriophylla x tombeanensis by Franz Sundermann round 1920.  Late flowering Saxifraga which is always nice nearly at the end of the season.  Very,very,very slow growing,making a hard compact litlle dome.  A fantastic 'Rockdiamond' especially in a Tuf stone.  It's a strong Sax and it will do in the open garden but the growth is minimal and it must be on a spot where it not can be overgrown.  'Vahlii' is not easy to propagate and the rooting is slow.  So not always plants available.


Considering the parents this is not a slow or difficult combination,however for there is just one Cultivar we can not see others will be easy as 'Agnes'

'Agnes' Whitish to Creamy-Yellowish. 3,00 1915 by Franz Sundermann.  tombeanensis x aretioides.  Late flowering slow growing.  Nice green bit up-going rosettes.  For a rather well bit more humus rich drained soil.


From the Central Caucasus comes desoulavyi and combined with sancta from the Bulgaria,Greece and the Tutkish Mountains it did give us a interesting Cultivar

'Stella' Yellow 2,00 1920 by F.Sundermann  Plant is closer to sancta.  Spiny sharp pointed rosettes which are bit soft.  Is best on open spot with enough light,can handle a fair amount of sunlight.
Give poor sandy and gravelly soil because this sax tend to grow very loose.  Interesting Sax for your collection.


This is the sort of combination i love very much,all special and beautiful botanical Saxifraga's with different features.

'Lutea' Pale Yellow-orangeish 3,00 x luteo-purpurea x stribrnyi 1913 F.Sundermann  Color can vary by position,if on a light open position in well drained gravelly lime richer substrate as in this picture 'Lutea' becomes more Orangeish.  If bit shady and moist the color can be more Yellow.  Irregular not fast growing Sax with varying rosettes in size.  Flowers very strong and longlasting.  Bit slow to root.  Good Saxifraga which is highly in demand by collectors.
'Rosea' Tinted-Rose 4,00 Seldom seen,rare and choice Saxifraga from 1913 by Franz Sundermann.  Same cross as 'Lutea' but with a complete different flower color!  The plants are almost identicall except for the flower color and maybe a slightly slower growth and sometimes less flowers in 'Rosea'.  Also slow in rooting.  Waitinglist.


A cross wich maybe deserves more attempts to create wonderfull plants like the only one until now.

'Joachim Barande' Pinkish-Purple 3,00 vandellii x  x anglica 'Winifred' very well chosen combination by Karel Lang 1998.  Position North-east on shady position with a humus richer substrate.  But take care of a fast and good drainage by adding loads of grit in the soil.  Try one in Tuf it will surprise you.  Also good plant for pot culture in Alpine-house.  Rooting not realy freely and easy.
