White Creeping Baby’s-breath

GYPSOPHILA repens (White Creeping Baby’s-breath) A dwarf cousin to the more familiar tall Baby’s Breath. Plants form a low mat of grey-green leaves, bearing masses of small starry white flowers in early summer, which literally smother the clump. Excellent for rock gardens or cascading over walls, as well as for edging or in mixed containers. Clip plants lightly immediately after blooming. Easily divided in spring or early fall. Drought and heat tolerant once established. Attractive to butterflies.

A Northern Sunset perennial, it prefers average, dry soil in full sun.
