Plant Details

A great British native for a planting somewhere rough where it will produce a good show of raggedy double pale sugar-pink campion-like flowers in late Summer.

Forms a neat clump and doesn't spread much, so makes a good border plant. 

Happy in very poor soil.

The leaves were used as a substitute for soap in washing, hence the name.

Height: 60cm

Common name(s): Double 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.
