Plant Details

A wonderfully vigorous plant which loves tumbling over walls or rocks. Clusters of rose-pink flowers cover the plant in early-mid summer.

A vigorous, low creeping plant, useful for spilling down sunny slopes or over rock walls. Plants form a low mound of bright-green leaves, literally smothered by starry bright-pink flowers in late spring and early-mid summer. Very rewarding.

Drought tolerant when established.

Awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

From the Alps in 1768.

Height: 10cm

Common name(s): Tumbling Ted; Rock Soapwort.

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
