Notes: Saxifraga hypnoides is extremely common in Iceland and reaches the Arctic. In Norway, it has been collected as an escaped ornamental in arctic Nordkapp (North Cape), probably persisting by vegetative means but not documented to be established. The garden plants may be complicated hybrids involving other species in addition to S. hypnoides.
