Gypsophila paniculata. Easily grown, this popular cut flower may be sown outdoors from early spring up to 2 months before the first frost date in the fall. Or, start transplants indoors 8 weeks before setting out after the last frost date in the spring to insure first year flowers. Provide even moisture and strong light. When seedlings are 4" tall, harden them off by gradually acclimating them to the outdoors for 1 to 2 weeks. After the threat of frost has passed, carefully transplant out into well-draining, loamy soil in full to filtered sunlight spaced 18" to 24" apart. Our old-fashioned Baby’s Breath is prized in summer bouquets as a delicate, airy filler with petite white flowers on well-branching, upright foliage. Summer flowering. Height: 3'.
