Muriel's Plant  (Saponaria officinalis (American Soapwort))

A hardy perennial. Given to me by a friend as having Pink Campanula-like flowers, supposedly invasive.
Does anyone know what it is.?

I like it. Do you have a 'safe space' to put it?

I put it in the ground 2 years ago when I was given it. It has not increased any just grown tall and flowered but is in a shady place.

Looks like my saponaria, but mine's a spreader. Same colour, though.

Thank you Anget, Seaburngirl also suggested Saponaria officinalis. I do like it, I'll change my File.

Found a stalk with similar leaves about a foot away from this original stalk. It's increasing!!

I've now taken the two pieces out of the ground and put in a large pot. Decision, where to put permenantly where it won't run into other plants roots?
