Saponaria officinalis 'Flore Pleno'

Common name soapwort, bouncing bet
Family caryophyllaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers pink or white (early summer)
Size 2-3'
Light full sun
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil

Upright plant with pretty double flowers, soft pink in our garden. Wants to spread around a bit by root runners, but isn't difficult to remove from places where it's not welcome. Some years it surprises us with a bountiful rebloom in late summer.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
