Gypsophila Covent Garden Seeds

Gypsophila Covent Garden plants (also known as Baby's Breath) produce thousands of tiny white flowers on wire-thin branches, giving an airy, soft impression and create a spectacular floral texture, in any garden. Gypsophila Covent Garden has a classic appeal and is increasingly being used in trendy gardens, as it is quick to flower (approx. 8 weeks), long flowering, easy to grow and requires essentially no maintenance. Gypsophila Covent Garden is ideal as a border or filler plant and is also commonly used in rock and cottage gardens. The Covent Garden variety of Gypsophila is commonly grown as a cut flower, and is also suitable for dried flower arrangements. Gypsophila Covent Garden is the variety commonly used by florists in Australia as a bunch filler (traditionally blended with a red rose for Valentine's Day) as the flowers are very long-lasting in arrangements.
