Description

Known as Baby’s Breath, Gypsophila elegans 'Rosea' produces a delicate froth of tiny pink single flowers on impossibly slender stems. The loose sprays of summer blooms have a light, airy habit that makes a superb ‘filler’ for the front of sunny borders. This florist’s favourite is an indispensable component of beautiful summer bouquets. An easy-to-grow hardy annual, Gypsophila elegans can be sown directly where it is to grow, positively thriving in less fertile but well-drained soils. The nectar-rich blooms are also prized by pollinating insects. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Sowing

Direct sow Gypsophila elegans seed outdoors where they are to grow from March to April in full sun, on any well-drained soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Sprinkle seeds thinly over the soil surface and lightly rake the soil to ensure the seed is just covered. Alternatively, sow seeds thinly at a depth of 3mm in drills spaced 30cm (12") apart. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Germination usually takes around 21 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them out to 30cm (12") apart.

Alternatively, an autumn sowing can be made for overwintering to produce earlier flowers. They can also be autumn sown, and grown on in pots, in a cold greenhouse to produce spring flowering pot plants.

More Info
Water regularly until plants they become fully established. Pinch out the growing tips while plants are young to encourage bushiness. Gypsophila plants require very little maintenance. Cut back after flowering to promote more flowers. Gypsophila elegans will seed freely. Deadhead faded flowers if new seedlings are not required.
