Saponaria, 'White Beauty'

In comparison to “Covent Garden” it is a bit sturdier, with slightly larger flowers to 1", and an added bonus of ornamental green seed pods and slightly waxy foliage. Cut in sprays that last for days! Appreciates cooler weather and can be direct sown every 2-3 weeks until mid-summer. 2-3" tall/wide.
