Fresh pink cover

A profusion of aromatic pink flowers. Soapwort (Saponaria ocymoides) grows nice and densely and stays low. It's robust ground cover. Pink soapwort can also be planted in a large flowerpot. You will receive the soapwort bare-rooted in environmentally friendly sugar cane sacking. The roots are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already one year old. This gives them additional strength, enabling them to grow faster than they would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. Bare-root stock plants grow when it becomes warmer. These are winter-hardy perennials, so they return every year. The flowers bloom in the summer.
Soapwort grows best in full sun. The plant prefers well-drained soil. It's best to give them extra water during dry periods.

Planting

Rock Soapwort is a perennial that grows best in the ground. Prepare a suitable hole in well-drained, calcareous soil. Improve heavy garden soil by mixing in some sharp sand. Plant the Rock Soapwort at the appropriate depth in the hole. The top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. Rock Soapwort grows and flourishes in a sunny area.

Saponaria ocymoides is perfect for the rock garden

Saponaria ocymoides is a rich-flowering plant that richly covers the ground considering its small size. As this plant likes growing between rocks, it is an excellent choice for the rock garden. The plant spreads around well and rapidly covers a large area. This adorable plant also looks great in a flower pot or planter. Provide it with a mix of sandy soil and place it in total sunshine.

Care

Rock Soapwort is a strong plant that requires minimal maintenance. Although drought is well-tolerated, be sure to prevent the soil around its roots from drying out. Before winter, the stems above the ground will die back. During this period, cover the plants with a layer of fallen leaves. Early in the spring, provide it with some garden manure and cut off its unpleasant-looking stems. Soon there will be some new shoots growing above the ground. Rock Soapwort hates wet soil during the winter. If necessary, cover the plant with a protection.

Extra

Saponaria ocymoides is one of the most well-known ground cover plants for the garden. This plant provides an abundance of scented pink flowers throughout the entire summer. If you look at the flowers of the Soap Rockwort, you can see that this plant is definitely a member of the carnation family! The flowers have a welcome fragrance.
