Blooms June–October.

Size: 12" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Polish Soapwort
Saponaria oliviana

Nestled on tidy, tight green evergreen cushions of very thin, succulentlike foliage, the myriad, nearly stemless blooms in ravishing rose-red hues stage an unbeatable display. Tuck Polish Soapwort into a crevice and you’ll soon see why this pumilio and caespitosa hybrid is touted as one of the most superb, freely flowering additions for the rockery.

Blooms June–July.

Size: 3"–4" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“I found Digging Dog in a gardening magazine and am so thrilled I did. I went to their website after reading about them and was so impressed I immediately placed an order ( after checking with Garden Watchdog of course !) My plants were delayed 3 weeks due to the hot weather. Each Monday someone from Digging Dog called, explained the situation and explained the delay. What service!! My plants arrived today happy healthy and good size. I could not be happier and will shop Digging Dog much in the future.”
