Saxifraga fortunei Sugar Plum Fairy
Product Details
 The foliage of these plants is much more like a standard herbaceous perennial - generally palmate with deep indentations, quite fleshy with fleshy petioles also. The foliage on this variety is rich apple-green on the upper surface and a little paler on the lower. The flowers are held in dense clusters on short stems above the foliage, colour is creamy white but these are paled into insignificance by the large cherry-pink bracts which last for several weeks.
 We find this one very similar to Saxifraga fortunei Cherry Pie.
