Excellent in garden & vase

But Gypsophila is also an excellent garden plant.
And it looks wonderful planted amongst roses and perennials, where the ‘Gyp’ billows in between for a soft, cloudy, romantic effect.

Easy garden grower

Gypsophila paniculata ‘Snowflake’ grows happily in the same conditions as roses, so no wonder they are such friendly neighbours.
And the ‘Gyp’ is so fine and whispy in flower, that it does not interfere with the health and air flow around the roses.
