.

The golden saxifrages flower in wet bog forests, on the banks of water bodies throughout the whole mainland, but for the Saaremaa people the golden saxifrage is unknown.

The golden saxifrage has a peculiar appearance, light yellowish green in colour and even the leaves in the same colour, creating a nice collar around the inflorescence which in turn is supported by the leaves or bracts. The bracts are fleshy and with serrated margins. The golden saxifrage is not easily confused with any other plant
