I was hoping someone would be able to identify the plant in this picture. Thanks. Ben
London Pride or saxifrage.
A really lovely little plant it is too. The flowers in spring are really pretty and the leaves make very good non invasive ground cover. Cheap and cheerful. It is well worth some space, those tiny flowers are exquisite in close up.

Thanks for the reply. Are there many different varieties? Pictures on the internet look different to the one I sent.
Hard to access the size but I think it's something smaller than London Pride, maybe some other saxifraga.
Ok its a saxifrage of some sort. That is one large group of plants to work though
"Saxifraga is the largest genus in the family Saxifragaceae, containing about 440 species of holarctic perennial plants, known as saxifrages or rockfoils. " Get out your plant encylopedias folks you will be burning the midnight oil .
