One of my favourite flowers - each bloom is so pretty.

Gorgeous delicate colour, is this a rockery plant soapwort by any chance just looks familiar, Barbra?

Is this the big sister to "Tumbling Ted"?

28 Jul, 2009

 

No, it's quite different from 'Tumbling Ted'! It's about 2' tall and stands up straight, it also spreads by rhizomes. I can't believe that they are both 'Saponaria'!

Sorry...I meant big....as in tall Spritz. I did have one a few years ago and was warned that it was a "spreader"....I planted the pot in the ground and it just shot away...........it had to go :(

Oooops! Mine is under control at the moment, but I never know from year to year exactly where the new stems are going to be!

It's a good'un. Mamagem - could you grow it over there?

1 Aug, 2009

 

i will agree it does spread... but how can you not want it too... it is lovely!

Yes Spritz, I do have the right zone for it. Why, do you have some seeds? I am always looking for new ones. It is very nice. Does it have a nice scent? I plant my scented flowers close to the doors so you get a nice smell as you walk in or out.

I don't even know whether it produces seeds, Mamagem, but I'll make a special point of looking this year! I don't think it has a scent, though. :-(
