SAPONARIA ocymoides

Soapwort

This plant is densely branched with a mounding to trailing habit, creating a mat 6-8″ tall with a 1-2′ spread.┬áIn summer (May to August) the plant is carpeted in sprays of small, bright pink flowers. Tolerates some drought once established making it a nice addition to the sunny rock garden.

After flowering, shear back by around half to encourage branching, bushy growth and reblooming. Clumps can be divided in spring or summer.
