Gypsophila paniculata 'Pink Fairy'

Baby's Breath

  • Relatively large, light pink, double flowers
  • Flowers appear like a pink cloud atop compact plants
  • If deadheaded, will rebloom in early fall



Baby's Breath Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Baby's Breath should be grown in full sun and slightly alkaline soil. This can be accomplished by adding lime to the soil at the time of planting if the original soil is acidic. Good drainage is essential to the health of this plant. Division is not recommended as a way to propagate Gypsophila because the large, fleshy roots it produces are easily damaged and should not be disturbed. Plants should be trimmed back in spring rather than fall.
