Description How to Grow Delivery

Inject late season colour into shady corners with this gorgeous new Japanese woodland saxifrage. Years of dedicated breeding have resulted in the late flowering 'Dancing Pixies Tilda', which starts flowering in September and continues throughout autumn – offering colour just when you and the garden needs a lift. Masses of starry, exquisitely formed flowers, delicately blushed with pink against a white background, dance above neat rosettes of deep green leaves, which set off the flowers beautifully. The dark, heavily scalloped leaves make this a a striking foliage plant even when not in flower.

Saxifraga ‘Dancing Pixies Tilda’ is superbly versatile. Plant it in a shady border with hostas, heucheras and astilbes to illuminate drab areas at a time when most other shade-lovers have ceased their spring flowering. Or use it as a sparkling feature plant for a container in a dull spot. 'Dancing Pixies Tilda' even makes a lovely, autumn-flowering houseplant and a perfect seasonal gift for plant lovers. Height and Spread: 15-25cm (6” to 10”).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
