Baby's-Breath (Gypsophilla elegans) is an annual which is quick growing with tiny little flowers. It makes a great addition to flower arrangements. It blooms quickly after sowing , but will very quickly begin to produce seeds. Because of this habit, it is best to plan several plantings at monthly intervals.

Baby's-Breath needs full sunlight and soil which is not too fertile. It grows to about 10-18 inches in height.
