Gypsophila Rosea Creeping Pink Babys Breath


(Gypsophila repens ‘Rosea’)


A spreading form of the traditional Baby’s Breath that is excellent for low growing perennial beds and rockeries.


Delightful pink flowers cover the bush in early to mid summer.


An open and sunny position with well drained high calcium soil is preferred. Gypsophila should be lightly trimmed after flowering. Plant amongst other low shrubs, as a border or in a rockery for a splash of pink or can be used as a tub specimen.


In the heat of summer give an occasional deep watering but do not over water in cooler months.


Regular applications of Seasol and Power Feed will keep it looking its best.
