'Teckles' is a bit of a mystery. The jury is out on whether it is a selection of Saxifraga paniculata, Saxifraga cotyledon or a hybrid. What is known is that this small plant packs a big punch in alpine gardens. Lush, almost succulent-like rosettes of deep green foliage are outlined in a white encrustation, giving them an almost sculptural appearance. Tall upright branching sprays of beautifully speckled white flowers float over the foliage in late spring.
