Buy Saponaria × lempergii 'Max Frei' soapwort: Single bright pink flowers

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy (borderline)

    A tumbling mass of soft pink, five-petalled flowers on hairy stems from June to August. This low-growing, evergreen perennial is perfect for the front of a sunny, well-drained border, rock garden or raised bed. Since it actually prefers neutral to slightly alkaline soil it's a good choice for a site recently cleared of builders' rubble.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring.

Good when in flower


Looked lovely when flowering, but decidedly gawky and unattractive out of flower and overwinter


South of England


Good edging plant


Flowered same year as planting and flowered for several months during summer. Got a bit straggly later on. Not known if it will survive winter as in its first year
