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. Not nearly as invasive as the native single variety so makes a good garden plant.
Happy in very poor soil.
The leaves were used as a substitute for soap in washing, hence the name.
All our plants are supplied established in pots. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, 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.
