Description More Info Delivery

Known as Baby’s Breath, Gypsophila elegans 'Rosea' produces a delicate froth of tiny pink single flowers on impossibly slender stems. The loose sprays of summer blooms have a light, airy habit that makes a superb ‘filler’ for the front of sunny borders. This florist’s favourite is an indispensable component of beautiful summer bouquets. An easy-to-grow hardy annual, Gypsophila elegans can be sown directly where it is to grow, positively thriving in less fertile but well-drained soils. The nectar-rich blooms are also prized by pollinating insects. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Water regularly until plants they become fully established. Pinch out the growing tips while plants are young to encourage bushiness. Gypsophila plants require very little maintenance. Cut back after flowering to promote more flowers. Gypsophila elegans will seed freely. Deadhead faded flowers if new seedlings are not required.
