Habitat Information
Meadow saxifrage is a plant of moist, well-drained, base-rich to neutral soils. It is found on a range of lightly grazed grasslands particularly hay meadows, unimproved pastures and grassy banks and verges.

New sites are often colonized by seed but Meadow saxifrage can also spread by means of bulbils which form at the base of the lower leaves and are the only part of the plant that exists in winter.


Growing Information
