Notes

Relatively large, double white flowers float like wispy white clouds in early to midsummer, a couple of weeks later than the other varieties. If deadheaded, Gypsophila is likely to rebloom in early fall. Its broad habit makes this plant the perfect cover up for dying bulb foliage or for perennials, such as poppies or bleeding hearts, that go dormant in summer. Baby's Breath also makes an excellent dried flower.
