In Bloom Today: Rock Soapwort

This is what’s in bloom in my garden today:

Rock Soapwort

Rock Soapwort, Saponaria ocymoides, requires no care from me in my garden; this is my kind of plant! Part of this plant is now living in my Mom’s rock garden. It prefers a sunny location, and well-drained soil. Guess what, I have it in mostly shade and clay soil and it still performs. With these conditions, it isn’t invasive. I’ll have to keep an eye on it in Mom’s rock garden though!
