The hanging saxifrage (Saxifraga stolonifera) comes from East Asia, grows crawling and spreads through runners. This is particularly effective when cultivated in a hanging basket.
The plant is native to China and Japan and is a very grateful hanging basket plant. Saxifraga stolonifera literally means "saxifrage". It grows in a kind of rosette, with long stemmed, roundish to kidney-shaped leaves, the upper side green with white nerves and the underside red and slightly dotted.
From May to August, delicate white flower panicles are formed, which protrude high above the leaves. The filamentous runners carry small young plants on their up to 50cm long shoots.

Special features: The Jew's Beard already delivers ready-made plants. Often they even have roots - then all you have to do is cut them off and plant them extra, preferably several together. Then the new plant becomes bushy. A shoot with rootless cuttings is led to a second pot with soil and clamped there. After growing, it is separated from the mother plant.
