Billowy mists of tiny white flowers from July through August.
Baby's Breath produces beautiful billowy mists of tiny white flowers from July through August. Excellent as a fresh cut flower or as a background in dried bouquets. Stately plants grow to 90 cm (36") tall, prefer neutral to somewhat alkaline soils. Plants will benefit from an application of gypsum to the soil every spring - this helps to maintain a plant favourable soil pH. Hardy to Zone 3.

How To Grow
