Keith Clout­ing’s in­valu­able ad­vice

Sax­ifraga for­tune ‘Black Ruby’

This beau­ti­ful lit­tle herba­ceous wood­land peren­nial forms a com­pact clump of shiny, al­most black, dark pur­ple fo­liage which in au­tumn is topped by loose pan­i­cles of bright rich pink flow­ers, adding a splash of colour to a shady bor­der or con­tainer. Sax­ifraga for­tunei are fully hardy, and grow best in moist well-drained soil with plenty of or­ganic mat­ter. Plant in shade or part shade in a shel­tered spot where the flow­ers can be en­joyed for as long as pos­si­ble be­fore be­ing frosted back in win­ter.
