Baby's Breath Red - Gypsophila elegans

Gypsophilas are often grown as ornamental plants in gardens; they are grown both as garden plants and also valuable as a cut flower in floristry to add as a filler to flower bouquets. The most commonly encountered in gardens are G. paniculata (a perennial species), G. elegans, and G. muralis (both annual species). They are easily propagated from seed, by cuttings, or by root division before growth starts in the spring. Starting as a tiny seed, the annuals and perennials germinate in ten to fifteen days, and can grow rapidly up to 50 cm in height. While they prefer full sun, along with rich, light soil, deficiencies in poor soil constitution can be overcome by adding a general purpose fertilizer, as long as it is well drained.

In the United States, it is common for young girls, particularly children attending weddings, to have their hair decorated with Baby's Breath.

Baby’s Breath is related to the carnation. It works excellent as a cut flower, but this variety does not work well as a dried flower. This flower is easy to grow and will be one of the first to bloom in the spring. Its origins are native to the Ukraine and it can be both an annual and perennial flower. Annual Baby’s Breath has larger blooms than the perennial variety.

This flower needs well-drained soil and full or partial sun to grow. It has a short bloom season, so in order to get continuous blooms plant seeds every couple of weeks. Baby’s Breath can be started indoors, but as with many others will do better if planted directly outdoors. This flower can grow in many types of soil and may do better if crowded. This species also comes in a variety of white.
