Saponaria ocymoides (Large Plant)

Tumbling Ted, Rock Soapwort

Hardy Perennial

Masses of pretty pink summer flowers smother the hairy, semi-evergreen stems of this vigorous little perennial. Tumbling Ted has a relaxed, spreading habit that is perfect for softening the edges of hard paving and rockeries, or tumbling informally from wall crevices. Undemanding and easy to grow, this RHS AGM variety also attracts beneficial insects to its nectar rich blooms. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 45cm (18").
