Gypsophila (Gypsophila Elegans Rosea) - This pink Baby's Breath is a short-lived annual (only 5 - 6 weeks) and has lance-shaped, fleshy leaves and single, light pink, blooms. Easy to grow and quick to bloom from flower seed, these pretty pink flowers bloom on wispy stalks. Gypsophila Elegans Rosea makes a wonderful cut flower and complements other, more showy flowers very nicely whether in the garden or in a vase.

If you would like to get a jump start on the growing season, sow Baby's Breath seeds indoors 4 - 6 weeks before the last frost is expected. Using starter trays and sterile potting mix, sow the flower seeds on the surface, pressing them into the soil. Gypsophila seeds need light for germination so do not cover heavily. Transplant Baby's Breath seedlings when there are at least two sets of true leaves into the flower garden, in prepared soil. To sow Gypsophila flower seeds directly outdoors, wait until temperatures have warmed and prepare the soil, sow the flower seeds and lightly rake the soil over the flower seeds barely covering them. Keep Baby's Breath seeds constantly moist, and germination should occur in 10 - 20 days. Repeat sowing Gypsophila Elegans seeds every 2 - 3 weeks for successive blooming all growing season.
