Saxifrages (from the Latin saxum, stone; frango, I break) are herbaceous perennials that grow in the cracks of old walls and, according to Victor Hugo, "love to gnaw the cement and dig their nails into the joints of stones" until they break the rock. This flower can be seen as a symbol of nature regaining its rights. Victor Hugo also sees it as an allegory of poetry, which feeds on the aridity of reality - shadow, misery and suffering - to grow.
