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 tiny pink veins. 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.
