    Rock Soapwort (sap-oh-NAIR-ee-uh: ok-kye-MOY-deez) Caryophyllaceae:

    This perennial grows about 8 inches tall and has a sprawling habit forming a nice carpet of semi-evergreen foliage. The small pink flowers are produced in good number in early summer. A nice rock garden, ground-cover, and filler between stepping stones. Showy blooms for a few weeks and attractive foliage the remaining of the year. Can self seed but excess plants are easy enough to remove. They do well in sun or light shade and cascade beautifully over rock edges or down a steep slope. In warmer areas plants may act as short-lived perennials fading away after three years.

    Zones 3-7

    Native to Spain, Corsica, Sardinia and Slovenia where it grows in mountains.

      Soapwort or Bouncing Bet Caryophyllaceae:

      Double and semi-double flowers in medium pink. The flowers are produced in good number on 3 foot tall plants. Attractive flower displays over many weeks from early to late summer. Plants spread by way of short underground runners, so use as a mass planting. Blooms heavily in late spring and has flowers into late summer. The sap of this species was mixed with water to make a soap - thus the common name 'soap wort.' Grow in full sun to half day shade, long lived and drought tolerant.
