Rock Soapwort, Saponaria ocymoides, is a fast growing, trailing evergreen that can be used nearly anywhere in the garden where you need summer color. Beautiful pink blooms arise in late spring and look gorgeous spilling over a retaining wall or snaking through a sunny rock garden. Planted in mass, it will provide a low maintenance groundcover that requires little water after establishment. To keep Rock Soapwort looking its best simply cut back after it has bloomed to prevent it from getting too leggy. This easy practice may also yield you a 'bonus' round of blooms in late summer!
