Forms a mat that reminds me of an unruly head of hair, to quite a nice effect, sprayed generously with pinkish-white flowers in late spring. Good front-of-the-border plant, or for the rock garden. Occasionally self-seeds in our garden.
||light pink to white

|Richard Quille||Feb 05, 2010||Hi there, got a couple of these last Autumn as cost almost nothing and I wanted something that might tolerate my slightly acid soil. Even adding lime hasn't helped me grow Gypsophila with any success. Being a Piscean I do like slightly girly plants !!
