Feature or Filler? Baby’s Breath – Gypsophila

Be sure to follow my new Pintrest page, “Feature or Filler“.

I love exploring plants that we normally think of as “just fillers”, and seeing if they look different planted or used in mass or as features. I’d love to know your two cents!

My first one: Gypsophila, otherwise known as Baby’s Breath. Gypsophila is a genus of flowering plants in the carnation family. Native to Eurasia, Africa, Australia and the Pacific Islands – this lovely little perennial is easily grown in most gardens during the Spring, Summer and Fall. Sometimes used as an herb, Gypsophila is mostly known for it’s trendy use in floral design. I’m most interested in mass plantings in the garden or in pots – and seeing the large tufts of white sprays bloom through the landscape.

I say, Feature!
