Flower Details

Overview

  • Baby’s Breath or gypsophilia is a dazzling snow-like white filler flower that can be used to accent your favourite flowers, or bunched together on its own for a dreamy cloud of white.
  • This is one of the most popular filler flowers we sell, it has a long vase life and dries very well!
  • Perfect for the classic white wedding, a bohemian vibe, or a sweet country garden wedding look.
  • Use sparingly for airy, sculptural designs, or in masses for a full and lush feel.
  • Average stem length is a minimum of 20 inches and a maximum of 31.5 inches.
  • Stems are branchy and can be separated to get the most out of each one.
  • If you’re looking for a beautiful and easy way to decorate a wedding aisle, babies breath in tin style buckets is a great idea (use about 1/3 bunch per vessel).
  • There are lots of varieties of babies breath, we usually send you the variety called ‘Million Star’.

Number of Stems

  • 20 stems per bunch

Specific Flower Care
  • Baby’s breath may arrive with some broken stems – this is normal due to the nature of variety.
  • The stems tend to get a bit compacted upon shipping, take the bunch outside and gently shake/tease apart the blooms.
  • Gently separate stems and clip off any bent branches to use for boutonnieres, corsages, or small vase arrangements!
  • Optional: Use Quick Dip (a floral product, sold at Michaels/Amazon) to briefly submerge your stems in upon arrival to encourage blossoms to open for an even fuller look.
  • Baby’s breath has a strong fragrance that can be unpleasant (to some people) in large quantities. Avoid using in masses on dinner tables if you’re a scent sensitive person!
  • Baby’s breath can be manipulated and trimmed/sculpted to create round forms for pomanders and topiary-style arrangements.
  • Very well suited for installation work, baby’s breath can be kept out of water for long periods – perfect for archways, pew markers, garlands, and other decor.
