Item #: 11494
Zones: 3a to 9b

Saxifraga 'Nezu Jinja' is a selection of the Japanese native Saxifraga stolonifera with enormous sized foliage. Discovered in the wild by French plant explorer Cedric Basset in Nezu, in the Bunkyo Special district of Tokyo, this selection has 6" wide leaves, compared to typical 2-3" wide leaves. Each fuzzy, textured leaf has a green base, highlighted by an intricate pattern of silver veins. In May, the patches are further highlighted by 1' tall panicles of small white flowers, hovering like a mass of tiny birds...truly stunning!
