Western Saxifrage
Saxifraga occidentalis

Season: Spring/Summer
Habitat:
 Moist to Dry Outcrops and Meadows
Height:
 Up to 20 cm

Description: Look for a basal clump of oval, toothed leaves, and a slightly hairy stem with no leaves. The flowers form in several tight clusters of small, white flowers. The lack of leaves along the stem, and its fuzzy nature, distinguishes it from the leather-leaved saxifrage. The leaves are also not evergreen.
