Baby's Breath is one of the most popular drought-tolerant wildflowers and it is easy to grow from flower seed.

Baby's Breath has tiny, virtually insignificant flowers compared to other wildflowers, but without Baby's Breath other more showy flowers don't appear to their best advantage. Everything looks better with Baby's Breath around it!

Gypsophila plants grow upright 12 - 24 inches tall and as wide. It is quite drought-tolerant.

The Gypsophila flowers are single-form, one-half inch across, abundant, and typically white but there are cultivars available in pink and rose. Its leaves are 3 inches long, lance-shaped, and fleshy.

Unfortunately, it is a very short-lived annual dying after only 5 - 6 weeks. Successively planting the flower seed every 2 - 3 weeks should ensure never being without it during the growing season.
