Common name: Baby's breath
Gypsophilas are perennials hardy to about zone 6 which bear broad-spreading, whispy displays of flowers from summer to early autumn. The flowers are small, and either white or pink. They make excellent cut flowers.
These plants like a well-drained, limy, soil and are tolerant of drying out. They require a sunny site.
Gypsophilas do not like being disturbed. Cut them back after flowering for a second show.
