Saxifraga ‘Marto Rose’ is a cultivar of the genus Saxifraga, commonly known as rockfoil or saxifrage. It is a compact, evergreen, perennial plant that forms a low rosette of green foliage, with small, pink or rose-colored flowers that bloom in late spring to early summer. The leaves are lance-shaped and have a scalloped edge. It prefers moist, well-drained, and humus-rich soil, and it prefers a shaded or partially shaded area. They can be planted in rock gardens, alpine gardens, or used as ground cover. They can be propagated by seed or by division of the clumps in spring. It’s easy to grow and requires minimal care. It is not fully hardy, so to guarantee its return next year it would need some protection.
