About Common Soapwort
Soapwort is native to Europe. It is an upright perennial with pink, rose or white clusters of flowers. Soapworts get their name because they contain saponins in the plant sap which lathers when used for washing. The plants are often seen growing along roadsides, waste places, and railroad tracks.
