Soapwort Herb (Saponara officinalis) is a perennial European native herb which has become thoroughly naturalised in the United States of America.
It is found growing in moist ditches, along roadsides, waste places, near old home sites, in meadows, and as a planted ornamental plant which has many attractive and quite aromatic flowers.
It forms colonies from underground rhizomes. The Soapwort herb is harvested in the spring and can be dried for later herb use. The flowers and leaves are used fresh or dried as body soap. The root is treated similarly.
It is also known as Soaproot, Bouncing Bet, Latherwort, Fuller’s Herb, Bruisewort, Crow Soap, Sweet Bett
