Saxifraga - Strawberry Begonia, Strawberry Geranium


Saxifraga is not a strawberry, begonia or geranium. The common name, mother of thousands, refers to the many plantlets produced on runners. Provide high light intensity with some light shade during the summer. More plantlets are produced under humid conditions. Allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings. Cool temperatures are best, ideally 40 degrees at night and 60 degrees during the day. The cultivar 'tricolor' has variegated leaves but is less vigorous.

Propagation is by runner plants and division.
