Saxifraga cochlearis, Reichb. (S. lingulata var. cochlearis, Engl.). Six to 9 in. high, densely cespitose, with short much-branched caudicles covered below with withered lvs.: lvs. densely rosulate, spreading, 1/2-1 in. long, linear at their base, toward the top spreading into a rounded or spatulate blade, glaucous, coriaceous, margin cartilaginous and crustate with lime; the cauline lvs. small, linear, acute, red-brown: infl. paniculate, erect and open, either thyrsoid or subcorymbose, borne on very slender bright red-brown fl.-sts.: fls. white, 1/2 - 3/4 in. diam.; calyx red-brown, the lobes small, ovate, obtuse; petals obovate, apex rounded. June, July. Maritime Alps. Eu.

Var. major, Hort., has much larger rosettes of lvs. and taller sprays of fls. It is suggested that it may be of hybrid origin. Var. minor, Hort. (S. Probynii, Correv.), has minute rosettes of silvery lvs. and much shorter sprays of fls. which are white.—Apparently some of the material grown as S. valdensis is referable to this. CH
