Often known as ‘Mouse-Ear Gypsophila’. A dwarf cousin to the widely known florists favorite Gypsophila. The hardy little alpine forms a low mound of compact foliage with deep green leaves and produces clusters of small, pink-veined, white flowers from spring to summer. Leaves become tinged with red in autumn and may remain evergreen in warmer climates. Not native, but pollinator friendly including bees and butterflies. Prefers a full sun site, but can tolerate partial shade. Plants well in a rock wall or garden with some shelter if possible. Needs a well drained soil. Generally very hardy but may suffer winter damage in colder climates.
