4-5" x 15-18" wide. Pink Soapwort is a wonderful Old World wildflower that carpets the late spring garden with a multitude of bright pink flowers. A vigorous groundcover, Soapwort readily reseeds itself and naturalizes in the garden. A prompt shearing, as the flowers fade, keeps it tidy and prevents reseeding. A superior ground cover, Soapwort is a particularly good choice for cold, short season areas of the inter-mountain West. It grows readily in almost any soil including clay. (seed propagated). Can tolerate occasional foot traffic

Flat of 32 plants will cover 40-48 square feet when planted together
