A very low cousin to the familiar Baby’s Breath of florist shops, this species is well suited to growing in the rock garden, rock wall or alpine trough. It forms a compact tuft or mound of small, rounded fresh green leaves, with taller branching stems that are studded with starry flowers from late spring into the summer. Petals are white with a splash of pink. Requires a well-drained site. Clumps may be divided in spring or early autumn. Drought tolerant. Flowers are attractive to butterflies. May remain evergreen in mild winter regions.
