Saxifrages are perhaps the ultimate rock garden plant, and 'Edith' is a choice example of the genus. Tight rosettes of grey-green leaves look like they have encrustations of lime at the leaf margins. These grow into an expanding cushion that sends up many short pink tinted flower stems bearing charming pale pink to white flowers in early spring. 'Edith' is the first horticultural selection made of Saxifraga x edithae, chosen in 1915.
