Brook Saxifrage

Genus Saxifraga
Saxifrage Family (Saxifragaceae)

Brook Saxifrage
Saxifraga arguta

The Brook Saxifrage grows in, or on the edges of small brooks in our high mountain areas. The plant has round, bright green leaves, which appear to have been cut out with pinking shears.

The small pinkish white flowers grow on a stiff wiry stem which rises from the dense mass of leaves.
