Description

Like the froth of pink fizz, Gypsophila 'Flamingo' bubbles up through your summer planting schemes each year with a fizzle of effervescent sparkle! The pink edition of the classic Baby’s Breath, you can use this Gypsophila to make cottage gardens even cuter, pastel planting schemes even more airy, or combine it with something more contemporary for contrast. What’s more, as a classic, long-lasting cut flower, this dreamy beauty is right back on trend.

Gypsophila paniculata 'Flamingo' loves a sunny spot in the border but can also be grown in sturdy pots too. When planting in borders, give them space between mixed perennials or foliage plants and once established they’ll fill a gap of 50cm-1m wide with a soft pink haze of tiny blooms from mid to late summer. This fully hardy perennial is low maintenance and fairly drought tolerant too, so you can enjoy it year after year with very little fuss at all!

Gracy says:
"Gypsophila
'Flamingo' will flourish in your garden provided you ensure she gets full sun, well-drained, alkaline soil and is watered well during the flowering season."
