Saponaria lempergii Max Frei

<i>Saponaria</i> x <i>lempergii</i> ‘Max Frei’



Naturals for the rockery or a well drained border, their paired leaves promise a lengthy profusion of flowers in showy clusters. These low growing European charmers like a lean soil.

Pretty loose bouquets of pure pink, inch-wide blossoms blanket ‘Max Frei’s noninvasive mass of slender and shiny green leaves nearly all summer long. Let this superlative Swiss hybrid spill over the edge of a bed, beautify a rock wall, or act as a colorful, small-scale ground cover.

Blooms June–October.

Size: 12" high x 18"–2' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Tricyrtis 'Empress' for its unique, late blooming flowers. Renowned for its extra large and wider open flowers, this exquisite, newly introduced Toad Lily is a formosana hybrid. Ornate, spidery spaced petals are inscribed by occasional darkened tips and irregular velvet-rich deep purple spots, stipples and mottling on a creamy white background. An enticing fall beacon amongst the shadows, ‘Empress’s showy terminal blooms are supported by an upright robust gathering of lustrous, semi-clasping dark green foliage that stays dapper all season.
