Saxifraga spathularis, the St Patrick's-cabbage, is a species of saxifrage native to Portugal, Ireland and Spain. It is a member of the so-called Lusitanian flora, a small set of plants which are native to Ireland but inexplicably absent from Britain. It consists of a basal rosette of elongate obovate succulent leaves around an upright leafless flowering stem. It seems to grow best in humic alpine habitats among acidic rocks.
