I like this baby's breath better than the more commonly seen Gypsophila paniculata. The pale pink flowers are larger, and the blue-green foliage is also attractive. It blooms the first year from seed if started early.
Gypsophila pacifica makes a great filler between roses, shrubs and large perennials. The airy sprays of flowers are good for fresh or dried arrangements. Self sows. Hardy in zones 3-9.
