Description

Everyone knows Baby’s Breath as a cut flower. Gypsophila paniculata 'Bristol Fairy', with its cloud of tiny white petals, is almost a must in floral arrangements and bouquets because of its light and airy texture and ability to soften the outlines of arrangements. Gypsophila even makes a good dried flower. However, not as many people think of growing this sweet and delicate beauty in their gardens to provide a cloud of pretty blooms that will delight you most of the summer!

Gracy says:
"Gypsophila 'Bristol Fairy' is a double flowered version of Baby’s Breath that will flourish in your garden provided you ensure she gets full sun, well-drained, alkaline soil and is watered well during the flowering season."
