The plants are of superior types in white, pink and blue with large flowers on top of plants with more uniform habit than other mixes. Plants grow 9 to 12 inches tall and bloom in mid to late spring. Surface sow seeds, light helps germination, F 70 germination is erratic from 1-10 weeks. A worthwhile selection to grow, making a good display in the spring.

Large glossy leaves take on a tangerine-red color in the fall and winter. Leaves can become a little ratty over the winter in exposed locations- but a trim in early spring cleans up the clumps. For best effect plant in groups of ten plants for a mass display.

Plants flower over a very long period from early summer to frost. The small rounded shiny, dark green leaves and the stems with the small flowers give this plant an attractive appearance mixed in with grasses. The foliage is scented and the plants are somewhat evergreen. Attractive to bees and butterflies. They will self seed around but not to a difficult degree. In the spring the foliage forms a mat on the ground which adds late winter and spring interest. Best in full sun or part shade in moisture retentive but well draining soils. Blooms for almost two months in late mid to late summer. Late in the year if the air is warm and humid plants can suffer from powdery mildew. With cooler temperatures the flowers become more intense in color. Plants can be divided in early spring.

Attractive, bright-almost glowing orange-red colored flowers shaped like small daisies, the flowers have reddish out sides and bright orange centers. Plants are for the rock garden and mass plantings. Keep in mind this is a weedy one that spreads both by seeds and runners. Does well in dry soils and in grass were mowing will not keep it in check. Flowers for a long period in early to mid summer. Use in poor soils in full sun. This is one of those plants that is best planted in one of those locations were every thing else you have tried has not performed well. I like the plant and the flowers, but one needs to keep an eye on it, thankfully it is not one of those over powering growers that smother every thing in it's path but only takes whatever bare ground it can find. Rabbits and Grouse like to feed on the leaves and seeds.

Very bright yellow flowers over very hairy silver-white colored leaves and stems, a fun addition to the front of the border. Plants grow 9 inches tall. Long blooming period in mid summer. Plants will bloom the second year. One of the neatest and best behaved of the hawkweeds with no runners and remaining attractive all season long. I have never had problems with self sowing, which cannot be said about some of the others in the Hawkweed group of plants. Grow in poor soils, that are free draining and alkaline in pH, does well in sandy and rocky soils. Like most plants with very hairy (downy) foliage and stems, plants do not like extremely wet or humid climates or wet rainy winters. Puts on a showy display and in bright sunlight the flowers are so bright that they almost blind you.

It is an attractive and useful small creeping plant with a strong minty scent. The scent is said by some to remind them of wintergreen. Once established plants form fast traveling, dense mats of glossy sheened, dark green leaves. The lavender colored flowers are produced in whorls around the tops of the stems. This species has chemicals that repel insects, and is often used in gardens to repeal insects from other garden plants. It should NOT be consumed, because it is toxic if eaten above a certain amount; the oils in the plants are high in pulegone, a highly toxic volatile organic compound, which harms the liver.

Lime free soils that are dry and well draining. Part shade to full sun. Plants have tall spiky flowers that reach 24 inches, leaves are roundish and held out flat over the ground. The wide flat leaves and flower spikes are reddish purple with colored veins. Darkest coloration in full sun.

Best in moist soils were it spreads out to form wide clumps. For full sun to light shade, long lived, forming woody like underground stems that remind me of fern roots (rhizomes). The foliage is semi-evergreen and remains green over much of the winter, even here in Minnesota, in exposed locations it will 'freeze off' or if the plants become very dry in summer they will go dormant and most of their leaves will yellow and disappear, with new growth when the plants receive enough water again. Blooming period is from early to late summer. This species is more tolerant of drier soils than most of the others, doing well in most any garden soil that does not bake dry in the summer.

Plants flower around 24-30 inches tall. One of the showiest and easiest of the Saxifraga to grow. Plants have large showy, pyramidal shaped flower panicles. The panicles are made up of branched flowers produced in great numbers. The flowers are fragrantly scented. Each single, cup shaped flower is white in color and is held on arching stems that face upward and as the panicles bloom they arc as the bloom progression moves closer to the top. The foliage is attractive, with dense rosettes of 3 inch long, narrow leaves with pointed tips - looking some what like a 'hens-and chicks' The leaves are edged in white. Plants flower in late spring. Very nice as a cut flower. Plants can be grown in the garden, in pots, troughs or the rock garden. Best in part shade or open shade in moderately moist soil. Takes more winter moisture than most other Saxifraga grown.

Seeds are very small so sow thinly over the surface.

The 5 to 8 inch tall flowering stems end in reddish-purple flowers. Low fertility soils required, best in sand based soils that are well drained. Grow in full sun or part shade. Will not thrive under hot, dry conditions.

For best seed germination: Sow in the fall and keep pots outside over winter for spring germination, needs a few months of cool, moist conditions. The seedlings start off life growing very slowly, so care should be taken to not allow them to dry out.

The foliage grows 2 inches or so tall and the flowering stems reach 8 to 15 inches tall. The flowers are produced on wide branching stems that are 12 inches or so across. The leaves are both, few lobed and deeply cut. Plants will self seed lightly over open ground. A worthwhile plant to grow in the rock garden or front of the border. Grow in a location with good drainage in full sun, plants in shade tend to be more open. Some self seeding, grows nicely in cracks and between paving stones. 2n=16

The flower display is airy and open and the flowers mix well with other nearby plants. Attractive lacy foliage with tall upright stems that have many flowers produced over a few months in late summer and fall. The flowers are on tall wiry stems and plants keep on blooming even after a frost. Plant in full sun to part shade in well drained soils, drought tolerant. Fun and long blooming from mid summer till hard frost. After the flowers are done blooming, egg-shaded seed clusters develop. Here in Minnesota it's the last plant to keep blooming in the year, lasting well past many solid frosts. For a scabiosa, the plants are long lived. Best display when planted in groups of three or five plants spaced out about 10 inches apart. Does well in rock or brick cracks. Drought tolerant. Some blooming the first year with a winter or spring sowing. Self seeds, but not overwhelmingly and any unwanted plants are easily disposed of.

Best in dry well drained locations in full sun, but will take some shade too but then growing with out the tinting. This is a spreader, with parts of the plants shedding off and rooting and makes for a nice thick ground cover. The yellow flowers and produced in good numbers and are clustered on top of short upright flowering stems. For the most part these plants grow on-top of the ground, so they do well even were the soil is very thin- even on bare rock. Best used in a rock garden or on a gravel bed, since plants are so low growing they do not compete well with other plants, but they spread well to form thick carpets. They are not overly drought tolerant but need supplemental water during dry periods.

Grows 2 to 8 inches tall and 12 inches wide. Nice for a rock wall. Fast growing and hardy and like most of the Tymes likes a dry, well drained soil that is not rich in nitrogen. The some what woody plants can stand some foot traffic too and release a scent when crushed.

Very useful for rock gardens, wall plantings or a ground-cover. Plant together with Delosperma cooperi, Gypsophila cerastioides, and Sedum spurium. This is a selection that produces very consistent 2 inch tall plants with carmine-pink flowers. Blooming from spring through early summer. As a welcome bonus, plants have a lemon scent to the leaves. Grows best on the dry side-wet soils will cause the plants to rot, and in soils that are not overly rich in nitrogen. Full sun to light shade.
