Saponaria lempergii Max Frei
Giant Flowered Soapwort
6" tall x 18" wide (cutting propagated). Huge clusters of clear pink flowers cover the entire plant in late summer, adding clouds of color to your garden when many other perennials have folded their tents for the season. This variety has great hybrid vigor, getting bigger and better every year in our display garden. Plant around the base of Caryopteris (Blue Mist Spirea) for a spectacular combination. This is an easy-to-grow variety, needing only compost enriched garden soil and moderate watering. Needs to be used more; such a great plant!

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
