Also to know is, how do you care for a London Pride plant?
London Pride needs no other maintenance: it will do well in sun or shade although it spreads better in shadier spots; it is drought tolerant so don’t worry about watering it; it is generally not bothered by pests or diseases; it is so easy to divide and replant around the garden and it is full hardy and perennial so …
Also question is, is London Pride poisonous?
Saxifraga ‘Variegata’ has no toxic effects reported.
When can you split London Pride?
Divide in spring or separate and root rosettes in late spring or early summer.
London Pride takes its name from a common name for the Saxifraga × urbium flower, in use by the nineteenth century.
Don’t move anything during a drought. Wait until we’ve had a worthwhile amount of rain. If they still have any flowers, or seedheads, take those off.
It’s a hybrid plant so it’s unlikely to set viable seed I’m afraid. It is possible but don’t get your hopes up. Always have backups of a plant if it has sentimental value. London Pride takes so easily from cuttings too.
