The plant is characterized by its small white or pink flowers that bloom in spring and summer, and its foliage that resembles moss or lichen. Although "mossy saxifrage" is the most widely used term for this plant, it has other synonyms as well, such as rockfoil, alpine saxifrage, alpine rockfoil, and creeping saxifrage. These synonyms reflect the plant's habitat and physical appearance, which is often found on rocks and cliffs in alpine and arctic regions, and its ability to spread and creep along the ground.
