Description

This lovely hybrid, coming true from seed, between Saponaria caespitosa and Saponaria ocymoides, combines the small plant size of the former with the larger clear pink flowers of the latter, which are held well above the rosette of leaves on densely-tufted flowering stems. Very few seeds collected.

Sowing Advice

Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
