Gypsophila (Gypsophila Repens Rose) - What a charming, delicate flower! This Creeping Baby's Breath is a perennial variety that easily establishes from Gypsophila seeds. It is very low-growing, only reaching 6 inches, and it spreads making it a great option as a ground cover. Gypsophila also works well for the border or creeping along in a path. Since this variety is trailing, it also is excellent in rock gardens, trailing over rock walls, or in pots. It's delightful wherever you decided to grow it! Baby's Breath has papery rose blooms and soft gray-green foliage. The light, airy masses of small pink flowers make a good contrast to larger flowers in the garden.

Baby's Breath ground cover is fairly carefree once it is established from flower seeds. It only requires good watering to keep the blooms profuse. It has a taproot and does not divide or move well. Sow Baby's Breath seeds indoors 6 weeks prior to last frost. Gypsophila seed germinates at a cooler temperature. Press flower seeds into the soil, but do not cover. Keep the flower seeds constantly moist, watering from underneath the starter tray. Do not put the trays in direct sunlight. Germination can be irregular. Transplant the Creeping Baby's Breath seedlings into prepared soil in the flower garden.
