Preserved Baby’s Breath (Gypsophila Paniculata)
Gypsophila paniculata is more commonly known as baby’s breath or in the floral industry as Mini Gyp. A herbaceous perennial native to central and eastern Europe, it prefers well-drained alkaline to neutral soil in full sun. Its stems are covered with tiny white flowers in summer, giving it the name of baby’s breath. The fullness of the plant makes it a popular backdrop and filler in floral arrangements. It is often simply referred to as “gyp” in the floral industry.
