    Second one looks like one of the saxifragas.

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    could this be 3

    it comes in pink as well

    I think 2 is a saxifrage as Dove says and i've seen 1 on the alpine shelf at the GC but don't know its name

    In the sticks near Peterborough

    I think the first two are saxifrage.

    Yes, number 2 is saxifraga umbrosa variegata, love it as the leaves are great to look at even when the flowers are gone

    Third one might be a sedum

    The 1st One has tiny purple flowers from now through the summer

    The second one I agree looks like a Saxifrage

    But the third once dies down in the winter an regrows like that in spring. It throws up a couple of short lived purplish flowers every now and again

    Sounds more likely to beSedum, quite a few die down in winter i believe from reading the blurb on mine.

    I thought the first one looked white matt. Try mazus reptans if they're mauve. 

    Still think the one in the pot is Oxalis adenophylla

    Yes it is Oxalis! Thanks for that one

    But unfortunately The 1st one isnt Mazus

    Thanks Fred#60 for identifying the Saxifrage too image
