An absolute gem, slow and tight, the perfect image of what many think an alpine should be like. Forms little pads, barely 1cm high, of tiny leaves clustered into little silver-grey rosettes.
Short stems of creamy flowers may appear in early summer, the stems about 10cm (4") high. Perfect in a stone trough or in a crevice - or any place where it can grow slowly in a gritty soil without crowding from more vigorous plants. It's easy to grow - it's just slow.
This plant often went under the name of Saxifraga 'Baldensis'
