Gypsophila repens ‘Filou White’

Creeping Baby’s Breath

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.240.160

This selection is a dwarf cousin to the more familiar tall Baby’s Breath. Plants form a low mat of blue-green leaves, bearing masses of small starry, white, fragrant, single flowers in early summer, which literally smother the clump. Excellent for rock gardens or cascading over walls, as well as for edging, as a groundcover in small areas and in mixed containers. Clip plants lightly immediately after blooming to encourage re-bloom. Easily divided in spring or early fall. Drought and heat tolerant once established. Attractive to butterflies. Easy.
