Quick Overview:

A new look in Gypsophila!  We are incredibly impressed with the compact, tightly mounded habit of this variety of Baby’s Breath.  The plants remain very tidy and uniform over the season, making great garden plants. Dense sprays of pure white flowers were produced on relatively short stems above the grey-green foliage , though they were still long enough for cutting for small posies.  This is also an incredibly long blooming selection, flowering from late spring into fall.

Description

Plant in full sun and well-drained soil. “Gypsophila” means “lime-loving.” If your soil is more than slightly acid, mix a handful of lime with the soil in the planting hole
