About Soapwort Seeds - Rock Soapwort

Saponaria ocymoides

Seed Type Open Pollinated Seed

Known for its abundant blooms and robust growth, this classic perennial has found its place in herb and cottage gardens worldwide. Our Rock Soapwort Seeds yield enduring blossoms adorned in vibrant pink. These petite flowers evoke the charm of phlox blossoms and bloom generously for months, typically beginning in late spring. This plant gracefully ascends and meanders over rocks, serving as an excellent trailing plant for walls or raised beds. Additionally, it functions admirably as a ground cover or fills the spaces between pavers. The flowers emit a delightfully sweet fragrance, particularly during the cooler evening hours.
