Pink Season Part 1

Saxifraga 'Peter Pan'

Saponaria ocymoides with dwarf iris leaves behind

Both of these plants are wonderful in bloom but also secretly satisfying to me in that I've killed both of them before by planting them in the ground.  I tried to mix in gravel and raise them up when I planted them but being in the ground was death to them.  Both are happy as can be in the more inhospitable (drier, hotter) climate of a hypertufa trough.  Whatever it takes...
