Description

Perfect mini buttons as a border filler and cut flower with exceptional vase life. This serves the role of pernenial gypsophilia, but does not need sowing every year.

Care Tips

Plant in a sunny spot in the middle of the border. Displays are much more effective planted in groups of 3. Cut back after first flowering to encourage a second flush in late summer. Divide plants every 3 years to rejuvenate.
