Saponaria Ocymoides

The Saponaria Ocymoides has been figured in the appendix to the fifth volume of the Flora Austriaca in its wild state, as in similar works every plant is expected to be, our figure represents a branch of it only, taken (as all ours in this work professedly are) from a garden specimen which grew on a wall of a particular construction in our garden at Brompton, and of which it was the principal ornament through the months of May, June, and July, during most of which time it was covered with a profusion of bloom.Though it produces blossoms in abundance, it affords but little seed, but may be increased by slips or cuttings.It is a hardy perennial, a native of France, Italy, Switzerland, and Carinthia, loves a pure air and a dry situation, grows best among rocks, stones, or out of a wall, and certainly is one of the best plants imaginable for ornamenting of rock work.I received seeds of it, and many other rare plants, from my very kind friend Mr. Daval, of Orbe, in Switzerland.
