Gypsophila p Viettes Dwarf BabyS Breath VietteS DwarfLatin Name: Gypsophila p.

Description: In addition to being a fine garden plant, baby’s breath is a mainstay filler plant of the floral industry. ‘Viette’s Dwarf’ is a compact cultivar that typically grows to only 12-15” tall and rarely needs staking or support. It is a diffusely branched, mound-forming plant that features numerous, long-lasting, double pink flowers in open airy panicles on wiry, jointed stems. Flowers slowly age to white. The main flush of bloom is late spring to early summer. Lance-shaped, blue-green leaves are somewhat sparse. Sprays of baby’s breath are frequently used as filler in bouquets and floral arrangements.
