Moisture loving members of the saxifrage family mostly valued for their handsome foliage. All produce a slowly expanding clump of creeping root and have horse chestnut like foliage often darkly tinted as it emerges. Flowers are borne on separate stems and if left standing when over will last well into the winter. They will grow in sun if the soil is moist, also in shade if the soil doesn't dry out. They spread slowly by rhizomes.
