Species with which Soapwort (Saponaria officinalis) interacts

Although I agree that it does look a bit similar Dame's Violet is a member of the Brassicaceae so has only 4 petals rather than the 5 on your plant.

I'm cautious with petal number and soapwort.

I have a huge clump growing near my office and they have about 50% with four petals and 50% with five petals. Typical of nature eh!
The fragrance is wonderful though! :)
