Rock Soapwort (Saponaria ocymoides)
Also known as "Tumbling Ted".
Low maintenance ground cover and rock garden perennial. Plants form a low mound of bright-green leaves, literally smothered by starry bright-deep-pink flowers in late spring. Easy to grow and drought tolerant, once established.
Also useful for edging and spilling over rock walls and out of containers. Not invasive. Plants can be easily divided, if desired, in early spring. Evergreen in all but the coldest zones. Deer resistant. Tough, but not for foot traffic.
Hardy Zones 2-9. May not remain evergreen in zones 2 & 3.
