Organic baby's breath

Gypsophila paniculata 'Snowflake' , also called 'baby's breath', grows about 60 centimeters high and consists of many branched flower stems with hundreds of small, white fragrant flowers. The leaves are narrow and gray-green in color and it blooms in June, July and August.

Baby's breath is often used as a filler in bouquets and flower arrangements because of its subtle, white flowers that combine well with other flowers.

The Gypsophila generally requires little maintenance. It has good pest and disease resistance, and spreads well annually to fill empty spaces, making it a useful ground cover.

Gypshophila paniculata 'Snowflake' is a perennial that faithfully returns every year and becomes increasingly full.

How, where and when do I plant the rhizomes of Gypsophila?

The rhizome of the baby's breath can be planted immediately, because it is winter hardy. Preferably plant it in a sunny position in a nutrient-rich, water-permeable, preferably a calcareous, sandy soil.

The planting depth is such that the rhizome is completely covered with soil and the new shoots protrude just above the ground. The planting distance is half a meter apart, 3 to 5 per m².

The Gypsophila is suitable for coastal areas, it can withstand salty winds well.

Care of the Baby's breath

Give the plant enough water so that it does not dry out on hot days. Allow the plant to die completely in the fall and then cut away the entire plant down to the ground.

Provide annual nutrition for optimal results!
We recommend Bio Kultura for organic potting soil, plant food and other soil improvers!

Propagation

The rhizomes multiply underground. If necessary, the plant can be dug up at the end of autumn to pull the rhizomes apart and plant them separately. They can then go straight back into the ground.

Origin of the Gypsophila

Gypsophila paniculata is native to southeastern Europe and western Siberia and was introduced into European gardens in the 18th century.
