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.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
