King's Crown



That's its common name. I'm not very good with plants but I have got this information for you:


Saxifraga longifolia, a native of the Pyrenees Mountains. A number of saxifrages absorb mineral-laden water and expel the excess calcium salts to the edges of their leaves, producing an encrusted effect.


Saxifraga longifolia produces solitary foliage rosettes 6" (15 cm) across. Unlike most of its relatives it does not produce offsets. It takes several years to bloom, producing a long (~2' ,or 60 cm) and showy, branched panicle of a hundred or more small white flowers, dying after producing its seeds.

~In His Love~ Maggi D
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

I agree with Maggi - it looks like a star burst! Love the story of it as well - it looks frosted. Viv
