Description
This is the wonderful, annual cousin of florist’s baby’s breath, which is a perennial and often a pest. With larger, wide-open blooms G. elegans blooms so early, it casts what appears to be a white cloud over the seeded meadow, often with the earliest blue cornflowers and red poppies blooming up through it—a true spring vision of wildflower beauty. One of our most useful meadow gardening species.

      Comments about American Meadows Baby's Breath Seeds - 1/4 LB:

      I purchase Baby's Breath seeds separately from my Wildflower mix because they are simply one of the most precious little flowers to have scattered around the wildflower beds. These seeds are reliable--I've never been disappointed. They bloom early & profusely, & Every time I look at them, I think how aptly-named they are. I especially like them mixed with Baby Blue Eyes.
