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:

        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.

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
