Saxifraga stolonifera 'Tricolor'


Saxifraga stolonifera 'Tricolor', the strawberry geranium or begonia, has variegated green, white, pink and maroon foliage.

Saxifraga stolonifera 'Tricolor', also called variegated strawberry geranium or strawberry begonia, is a new take on an old house plant that is actually quite hardy. This is a spreading evergreen perennial with spectacular variegation. Fuzzy, round, gray-green leaves have variable creamy-white margins often flushed with pink and maroon undersides. Delicate clusters of airy white flowers dance on slender stems well above the foliage. Long strawberry-like runners produce baby plants. Use as a ground cover in the shady garden and as a houseplant!
