Gypsophila- Annuals and hardy perennials

With small white flowers; very well known as cut flowers.

Situation:

An ideal border plant, very beautiful in combination with other plants. The annual species is excellent for cutting.

Soil:

Porous, chalky, but cool, soil.

Propagation:

Annuals are sown out of doors in early spring. Hardy perennials are grown from seed; double forms are grafted.

Gypsophila elegans: Annual, height 30-50 cm; white or pink flowers, 1 cm across, from early summer to early autumn.

Gypsopbila paniculata: Hardy perennial, height to 1 m; very wide, white flowers in summer months. ‘Bristol Fairy’ is double; ‘Pink Star’, 40 cm, double pink, is more beautiful than the cultivar ‘Rosy Veil’ which is frequently available.
