Saponaria officinalis

Saponaria officinalis
  • Saponaria-off-rosea-plena
The scented, pink flowers look a bit like those of a phlox. They are carried in clusters on tall, somewhat brittle stems with waxy, mid-green leaves. Once grown as a detergent for washing clothe, it can still be found on roadside verges around the British countryside, marking the places where villages once stood - the villagers having used it to wash clothes.
