Gypsophila Plants - Pretty Maid

Popular in many a wedding bouquet, this is one of those plants that catches your eye from a distance and captivates your attention close up. Each flower forms a perfect white, centimetre-wide cup with the prettiest delicate pink veining.

Most people will know of gypsohila, but associate it with wedding bouquets and arrangements, where it acts as a perfect foil for other showier flowers, Pretty Maid Gypsophila however doesn’t need other flowers to create drama.

Fred Yates who bred Pretty Maid here in the UK is well known for taking popular British garden plants and challenging the boundaries of the genus. Already recognised for previous successes with begonias and penstemons, Fred challenged himself to develop a gypsophila with larger, more densely packed flowers than ever before.

This perennial gypsophila will form a 25 -30cm mound in its first year but can also tumble over walls and its pink and white colouring would work perfectly when grown alongside aubretia.

This extremely hardy and beautiful plant ticks other key boxes for the modern gardener, being both drought tolerant and attracting pollinating insects. Pretty maid bursts into bloom in April and flowers throughout the spring, providing an invaluable early nectar source until other flowers are ready to take over.

Height 20-30cm (80-12"); spread 30-40cm (12-16"). Supplied in 9cm pots.

It's Gypsophila ..... but not as you know it!

Popular in many a wedding bouquet, this is one of those plants that catches your eye from a distance and captivates your attention close up. Each flower forms a perfect white, centimetre-wide cup with the prettiest delicate pink veining.

  • Extremely hardy and drought tolerant
  • Early flowers - perfect for bees
  • Sweetly scented

Bred right here in the UK, this extremely hardy, drought tolerant, perennial gypsophila will form a 25-30cm mound in its first year but can also tumble over walls, rather like another herald of spring, the aubretia. In fact, the two would make a wonderfully early, spring display if grown together. Expect it to be loved by pollinators as well as gardeners as it will provide a very welcome early source of nectar and pollen at a time of year when supplies can be sparse for bees and other pollinators that have struggled to survive through the winter.

And finally, just in case you didn't already have enough reasons to desire it, this gypsophila is also scented, to tempt you outside and indulge your senses and start you dreaming of the warmer months to come.
