Hi there

please could you identify this for me. It was a gift and I'd love to get soe more as it seems very reliable - flowering for 4th year - and lives happily on a diet of shameful neglect and inattention which is perfect for a busy woman. It doesnt have any scent - flowers or leaves - and has a bit of a cascading habit.

Thanks very much

Looks like Saponaria ocymoides.
