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.
