Gypsophila (Baby's Breath)
From bridal bouquets to flower beds, Gypsophila can decorate each in it's own graceful way. In the flower bed, on a big scale Gypsophila can grow in bare areas and can be combined with almost every other kind of flower. Gypsophila foremost prefers a sandy and warm ground. It is important that it contains chalk and is rather permeable. Warmth poses an important factor for flourishing, this is why Gypsophila often grows in cracks or in stony, dry regions. It's important to plant Gyposphila in a wind protected place, so the plant does not get damaged by strong winds.
A long time favorite, Snowflake Gypsophila has white double flowers in the summer and fall. Attracts butterflies. Deer resistant. Trim after blooming to promote vigorous new foliage. Cut back in the fall for strong spring growth.
