One of the most widely-used cut flowers, Baby’s Breath is also popular for its airy, cloudlike display in the summer border. Plants form a bushy, upright mound that bears thousands of tiny white double flowers, held in branching heads. Remove faded flowers to encourage repeat blooming in the fall. Because this bushes out in mid-summer, it is often recommended as a neighbor to Oriental Poppies, which go dormant after blooming; the Baby’s Breath will fill in the gap left in the garden. Drought tolerant, once established. Plants require excellent drainage, particularly in winter.
