(Saponaria ocymoides) Vigorous, low-trailing perennial plant--so beautiful used as a ground cover, in the rock garden or atop a stone wall. A carpet of deep pink, 5-petaled flowers is a bonus in late spring, nearly covering the plants. Fine for edging the border and charming in containers as well. Evergreen plants are drought-tolerant once established. Another old-fashioned favorite.

Review:

Old heirloom called 'Bouncing Betts', spreads by underground runners. Can take a little heavy shade, or an all day very light shade, but prefers full sun. Has escaped into the wild from old cloth mills that planted them to wash their fabrics (single flowered ones, these doubles are quite a find!) and almost always see them in medium to poor gravelly soil, often along train tracks or river bluffs. They seem to like a bit of a rise. Love to be pampered, but are happy left to themselves too. I'm in Northern Illinois, they do fine up here. Hope this helps!

Review:

Tried to grow this on a rock bed in deep shade and it did not work. I don't know if there wasn't enough dirt, there was too much shade, the drought conditions, or over-zealous "weeding" on my part. I am going to try again and this time I will try growing it on the other side of the fence (has less dirt, but more sun). I REALLY want to make my own soap and shampoo and this is what I need to do it.
