Details

Baby's Breath conjures images of cheesy, typical wedding bouquets of bright red roses dripping with the wispy flower. And while the plant's clusters of delicate white flowers can make a superb supporting player in a bouquet, it's also a standout by itself. Allow it to grow alone--where it can reach big heights--and Baby's Breath can add a whimsical-yet-powerful element to your garden. While its typical uses (gaudy floral arrangements) scream high-maintenance, the plant itself is fine with just some water and maybe a little cutting back.
