Day 13 Advent Calendar: Gypsophila White

A super cute variety that is amazing sprinkled in borders for a frothy and pretty element to borders. This Gypsophila (also known as baby’s breath) is an annual,  that are grown for their sprays of tiny, button-like flowers in summer.

Gypsophila is brilliant as a cut flower as it is a gorgeous filler. They do exactly the same in a border, where their thin, wiry stems and clouds of flowers make them an excellent ‘filler’, bridging the gap between different plants and bringing an airy feel to a planting scheme.

Gypsophilas are ideal for cottage gardens, white gardens, gravel gardens and, of course, cutting gardens – just give them plenty of sunshine and room to spread. Around five stems are perfect for a good display in a bouquet or vase and the blooms should last at least seven days in water. The flowers dry very easily for arrangements, too.
