Naturals for the rockery or a well drained border, their paired leaves promise a lengthy profusion of flowers in showy clusters. These low growing European charmers like a lean soil.
Pretty loose bouquets of pure pink, inch-wide blossoms blanket ‘Max Frei’s noninvasive mass of slender and shiny green leaves nearly all summer long. Let this superlative Swiss hybrid spill over the edge of a bed, beautify a rock wall, or act as a colorful, small-scale ground cover.
Size: 12" high x 18"–2' wide; hardy to zone 5.
Saponaria x lempergii ‘Max Frei’ (P-0133)

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.
Size: 3"–4" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 4.
Saponaria x oliviana (P-1284)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
