Gypsophila General Information

One of the most widely-used cut flowers. Gysophila repens are good groundcovers for hot dry spots. Very hardy to cold, but does not tolerate humidity well. Creeping baby's breath likes well-drained, alkaline soil. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Gypsophila Plant Care

No special care needed. Dislikes being moved or divided once established. Likes a well-drained, alkaline soil. Clip plants lightly immediately after blooming to encourage re-bloom.
