Tough-as-nails, underappreciated garden workhorse

About Me Master Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Saponaria ocymoides:
Few truly useful garden plants are as tough or as undemanding as Saponaria ocymoides.Plant a small seedling in reasonably well-drained soil (including cracks in concrete or stone walls), water it the first month or so, then forget it. It will be straggly and insubstantial at first, but in a couple of years it will be a lush mound as much as 90 cm across, completely covered in pink flowers for almost a month in late spring.When the main flush of bloom is over, cut it back or do like me and wait until the seed heads have dried, at which point it's easy to just pull them out, leaving a core mound that will soon look fresh and neat the rest of the year.If you do wait until the seed heads have matured, you'll have lots of volunteer seedlings, but they grow very slowly and are easy to pull out.Perfectly well adapted to the wet winters and dry summers of the Pacific Northwest. Incredibly drought-tolerant. Does not spread by runners. Loves alkaline soils, but also does just fine in slightly acidic ones. There's also a white form, which is slightly less vigorous but blooms at roughly the same time and contrasts nicely with the pink form.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Lafayette, NJ
Wonderful front-of-border, edger and (yes) hanging basket plant. Think of it something like phlox subulata (moss pinks) on a small dose of steroids. Blooms a bit later -- into June, can take harsh conditions or richer, moister conditions. Just a sheet of color in bloom. You won't be disappointed if you try this plant.
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.
