General Information

Called coral bells because of its terra cotta-colored flowers, can be found in the warm, dry canyons of Arizona.

Though tangy and slightly astringent, the leaves may be used to liven up bland greens.
Natives of the Northwest U.S. have used tonic derived of Alumroot roots to aid digestive difficulties, but extractions from the root can also be used to stop minor bleeding, reduce inflammation, and otherwise shrink moist tissues after swelling.
These were super tiny flowers.

Saxifrage means Rock Breaker.
