Saponaria caespitosa x Saponaria ocymoides. Just a single plant overwintered in our nursery area out of two seasons worth of attempts; I put it into our rock garden in early spring. As you can see from the photo, it wasn't exactly a thing of beauty at the time, but it filled out by summer. Not flowers yet, though.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: rock garden
