Saxifraga stolonifera / Yukinoshita ユキノシタ

 
Saxifraga stolonifer, a perennial herb generally inhabiting damp rocks, sends out red runners from the bases and sets new plantlets at the terminals, thus, resulting in vast colonies. Leaves are radical with long petioles, blades 3-6cm long, in the shape of kidney-circular, thick, and soft, with the surfaces dark green and white macules, tinging dark purple and white speckles on the backsides. Scapes measure 20-50cm long, with glandular hairs, give many white flowers conically. Bloom time: May-June.
