Draba 'John Saxton'

1st May 2016

A pretty white hybrid Draba. It is not a genus I have grown before (if we disregard a brief drabicidal dabble as a teenager). They are a bit too "alpiney" for my wet garden, they even seem to object to the air. This is just a trial in the hydroponic alpine bed to see if it changes conditions enough to allow me to grow them. The selection process was quite simple - this was the first one I saw for sale. It struggled for a year and then dropped dead so I think my questions have been answered.
