    Description

    Saxifraga umbrosa 'Variegata', the variegated form of London Pride or St Patrick's Cabbage, is a bold cultivar with green rosettes liberally splashed with gold. Clumping to slowly form a low ground-hugging blanket, Saxifraga umbrosa 'Variegata' is a tough alpine that combines well with other more exotic plants in a well-drained rocky substrate. Agaves and hardy Aloes work well with this variegated version of London Pride: in particular, plants like Aloe aristata, small or medium-sized variegated Agaves like Agave lechugilla or Agave univittata. Saxifraga umbrosa 'Variegata' can even be used as a carpet around the giant Agave americana 'Marginata'.

    The tall downy panicles of white and pink flowers throughout the summer are a real joy.
