The Very Best of the Taller Baby’s Breaths!
This new Baby’s Breath looks great in the garden all season! It keeps blooming over the summer rather than going dormant just when your garden is hitting its peak, like older varieties do. And its airy, semi-double blooms float over the entire plant, covering it all the way to the ground! At 2 to 2½ feet tall, it is much more compact than the typical sprawling 4-foot Baby’s Breath, and fits nicely among other plants in the garden. Even better, the clouds of dainty blooms are pristine white, and they stay that way, sparkling in the garden from early summer on into late summer, and even into fall if you cut the plant back lightly in midsummer.
A Baby’s Breath for the Home Gardener, Not just Florists!
Love Baby’s Breath, but didn’t think it would actually grow in your garden and look good? Well, not only is Summer Sparkles easy to grow, but its tight habit is a great improvement over the sprawling, open habit of older varieties. It is tall enough that its stems fit nicely into a vase, but dense and compact enough that it looks great in the garden, mingling beautifully with other plants in the mid-border. And the dainty blooms stay a crisp white when dried, making them a mainstay in dried arrangements. All you have to do is stroll into your yard to have the makings of gorgeous bouquets!
Carefree and Easy to Grow, too!
Planted in a spot that meets its needs, this plant requires very little care to grow and bloom its heart out for you! Drought tolerant and deer resistant, it is a great plant for U.S. gardens.
Plant in full sun in average garden soil that has good drainage. If you have very acidic soil, add lime to the soil when you plant. If you have a heavy clay soil, plant in a raised bed, and add plenty of composted leaves or other organic matter to the soil. This plant will tolerate a hot, dry site once established, but it will need watering when it becomes dry during the first year, while it is establishing its roots.
