Meadow Saxifrage - Saxifraga granulata
Short to medium hairy plant, stem erect, branched above. Leaves mostly basal, kidney shaped, lobed, or bluntly deep toothed, with small bulbils at the base of the stalk (below ground). Flowers white 18 to 30 mm in loose branched clusters.

April to June.
Local distribution in Britain, it is rare in south-western England and northern Scotland.
Occasional and localised in Leicestershire and Rutland though it can be plentiful when found. In the 1979 Flora survey of Leicestershire it was found in 74 of the 617 tetrads.
In the current checklist, Jeeves, 2011, it is listed as occasional, becoming scarce
