Description

I fell on this at a plant fair a couple of years ago, a pink perennial gypsophila. This looks best arranged simply on its own in clouds in a vase, or magnificent hanging as a mini-globe. It dries well too.

Care Tips

Prefers an alkaline soil and dislikes sitting in winter wet, so provide good drainage. Cut back after flowering to encourage a second flush of flowers.
